Bruce Springsteen + Gary Clarke Jr. Honor Jon Stewart With ‘Come Together’: Look + Listen

Making his first live appearance of 2022, on Sunday evening Bruce Springsteen honored longtime friend Jon Stewart, who received the 23rd annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

As part of the festivities, The Boss linked up with Gary Clark Jr. to cover the Beatles’ “Come Together,” his first time performing the classic since the 1994 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony where he played it with Axl Rose to honor John Lennon. Springsteen also performed an acoustic solo rendition of his classic, “Born to Run.”

Back in 2009, the roles were reversed when Stewart spoke about Springsteen at the 2009 Kennedy Center Honors stating “Whenever I see Bruce Springsteen do anything, he empties the tank – every time.” “And the beautiful thing about this man is that he empties that tank for his family, he empties that tank for his art, he empties that tank for his audience, and he empties it for his country. And we, on the receiving end of that beautiful gift are ourselves rejuvenated, if not redeemed, and I thank you.”

Alongside the musical performances, the ceremony also featured Steve Carell, Pete Davidson, Samantha Bee, Jimmy Kimmel, Olivia Munn. and Dave Chappelle who said of Stewart “It’s a miracle to watch you work. You are a cure to what ails our culture.”
