Inauguration Day, grande festa a Capitol Hill: dallo show di Tom Hanks a Springsteen

Saranno molte le star presenti per l'Inauguration Day, per festeggiare il nuovo presidente Biden.

Oggi Joe Biden e Kamala Harris verranno festeggiati: il tanto atteso Inauguration Day. Non mancheranno tantissime star Americane che presenzieranno lì, a Capitol Hill.

Non ci sarà pubblico, se non incollato al piccolo schermo gustarsi l’inno Americano cantato da Lady Gaga. A seguire  Jennifer Lopez che si esibirà in uno spettacolo musicale. Sarà poi la volta della poetessa e attivista afroamericana Amanda Gorman che leggerà un testo da lei scritto, per finire con la benedizione di un amico di famiglia dei Biden, il pastore metodista Silvester Beaman.

E poi altro momento tanto atteso:in prima serata Tom Hanks presenterà uno speciale tv di 90 minuti con Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake e Ant Clemons tra i tanti ospiti. Un 20 gennaio blindato dopo l’assalto al Congresso il giorno della befana: le autorità di Washington hanno chiuso l’intero National Mall per motivi di sicurezza, mentre un «muro inviolabile» di oltre due metri è stato eretto attorno al Capitol.

Ecco il comunicato ufficiale dell’evento:
