Bruce Springsteen is coming to Greensboro, and although music is the order of
the day, he'll be doing more than playing his hits.
The famous rocker is also lending his support to People of Faith Against the
Death Penalty, a national group based in Carrboro. Springsteen donated 4
tickets and side-stage passes for Monday's concert in the Greensboro Coliseum
to the group, which sold them as a fundraiser.
The organization also will have a table to distribute literature at the
coliseum and will collect donations and petition signatures.
Stephen Dear, the group's executive director, says Springsteen has given the
group similar support at past concert tour stops in North Carolina.
Among Springsteen's famous songs is the Oscar-nominated "Dead Man Walking,"
written for the anti-death penalty film of the same name.
