Millions of people around the world gathered to participate in several Women's Marches one day after Trump was inaugurated on Friday (20Jan17), and The Boss made it clear he was with the activists in spirit as he tours Australia and New Zealand.
On Sunday (22Jan17), Bruce spoke about his support of the movement at a concert in Perth, after his wife and fellow E Street Band member Patti Scialfa marched in New Jersey's Asbury Park.
"We're a long way from home," he told the crowd. "Our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city of America. And in Melbourne.
"We rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, health care and immigrant rights. We stand with you. We are the new American resistance."
Bruce was a vocal supporter of Trump's opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and recently performed a secret acoustic concert to thank former U.S. President Barack Obama's staff earlier this month (Jan17).
He opened his set with a brief note of thanks to the Obamas and played hits such as Born in the U.S.A., Dancing in the Dark and Land of Hope and Dreams as well as Tougher Than the Rest and If I Should Fall Behind with his wife Patti Scialfa. He also reportedly discussed politics and Obama's impact on America in between tracks.
Obama took to the stage to thank Bruce and said, "He's been with us for some time now, performing his craft to show his support."
