Bruce Springsteen Will Take Over Broadway in October

Iconic Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen will take center stage at Walter Kerr Theater in New York, New York in October.

What will be an eight-week residency kicks off Thursday, October 12 with exclusive previews of the show starting Tuesday, October 3. The show will see its final curtain call on Monday, November 26.

Springsteen is set to perform five consecutive nights a week, from Tuesday to Saturday.

Tickets for the highly anticipated event have been on sale since yesterday via Ticketmaster. Sales will end this month on the 27th.

The New York Post relayed earlier in June that the award-winning rock and roll singer-songwriter craved the idea of performing on Broadway, but specifically to a small audience. The Walter Kerr Theater holds only 975 people, giving Springsteen the ideal place to perform.

Springsteen announced in a recent statement:

“I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theater is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years.”

He continued saying, “My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music. Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.”

Springsteen is set to play songs from his extensive discography that has run the course of 44 years since his debut album Greeting from Asbury Park, N.J. in 1973. He will also include live readings of excerpts from his 2016 novel Born to Run.
