Bruce Springsteen, John Legend and Foo Fighters will perform during the prime-time special that will cap the inauguration of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., and the actors Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington will also have roles to play in the program, the Presidential Inaugural Committee said on Friday.
The announcement added yet more stars to “Celebrating America,” an event scheduled for the evening of Jan. 20.
This week, Mr. Biden’s inaugural committee unveiled plans for the program, saying the actor Tom Hanks would host while artists like Justin Timberlake, Jon Bon Jovi and Demi Lovato would perform.
Officials have said that the 90-minute event will also include remarks from Mr. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
During the piecemeal rollout of inauguration plans, Mr. Biden's team has said that the program will “showcase the American people’s resilience, heroism and unified commitment to coming together as a nation to heal and rebuild.” In a news release on Friday, officials specified that the program would include “stories of young people making a difference in their communities.” Ms. Longoria and Ms. Washington, they said, will introduce those segments, as well as musical performances throughout the night.
