Bruce Springsteen Sings Out Jon Stewart’s Final The Daily Show

by Paul Cashmere on August 7, 2015

in News

Bruce Springsteen performed ‘Land of Hopes and Dreams’ and a piece of ‘Born To Run’ for Jon Stewart’s final ‘The Daily Show’.

“That’s our show” and with that, he’s done. Over to Bruce Springsteen now,” Stewart said ending an era in news television.

Stewart has retired from the show after 16 years, making way for a new season with Trevor Noah. Even President Obama, a recent and regular guest on the show, tweeted today “”You’ve been a great gift to the country.”

Stewart’s nurtured many of the faces we see on TV today and many were there to say goodbye with Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Ed Helms, Steve Carell and Olivia Munn featuring in the final show.

Stewart was 36 when he took over the show in 1999 from Craig Kilborn who fronted the program for the first three years.

Stewart’s 16-year run is the second longest continuous program for Comedy Central after South Park.
