ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is calling on native son Bruce Springsteen to step up and help Atlantic City by performing at the new Revel casino on Labor Day weekend.

The governor made the plea Tuesday during a tour of the new casino, which opens Monday. The facility wouldn’t have been finished without state tax incentives.

The governor views Revel as the centerpiece of an effort to revive the fortunes of Atlantic City, where the casino business has been on a long downward spiral.

Christie says Springsteen already lost out to Beyonce for the chance to headline at Revel’s grand opening Memorial Day weekend. He says Springsteen could still show his support for New Jersey by performing at Revel during Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer.
