Barack Obama will close out his 2012 presidential campaign with performances from Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z during rallies in Ohio and Iowa, the Washington Post reports.

Both Springsteen and Jay-Z will join Obama at a rally in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday, while Springsteen will also travel to Des Moines, Iowa, later that day to join First Lady Michelle Obama for the campaign's last hurrah.

Both Springsteen and Jay-Z have been stumping for Obama throughout the campaign. Hova and his wife Beyoncé hosted a fundraiser at the 40/40 Club in New York in September, while Springsteen has appeared at several rallies in Virginia, Pittsburgh and a few weeks ago in Parma, Ohio, with Bill Clinton.

Today, it was also announced that Katy Perry will join Obama for a rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday. Other artists throwing their support behind the President include Marc Anthony and Gabrielle Union, who joined Michelle Obama at a rally in Florida recently, and Dave Matthews Band, who will play an event this Saturday in Bristow, Virginia, with Obama and Clinton.
