HIS (ADOPTED) HOMETOWN
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform live on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, N.J., on NBC's Today show July 30. Springsteen will sing several songs from The Rising, his first studio album with E Street in 18 years. Katie Couric and Matt Lauer will anchor that day's entire show from Springsteen's adopted hometown. Speaking of Couric, major props go to the Today hostess for more than holding her own Wednesday opposite conservative hellraiser Ann Coulter.
