GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Bruce Springsteen is coming to Greensboro, but while 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 four tickets and side-stage passes for Monday’s concert to the group, which sold them as a fundraiser.

The organization will also have a table to distribute literature at Memorial 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.
