Bruce Springsteen will extend his “Springsteen on Broadway” run again, through Dec. 15. He also has announced that Dec. 15 will be the final New York show.
That leaves open, though, the question of whether he might present the autobiographical show, featuring mostly just himself (with his wife, Patti Scialfa, performing on two songs), in other cities.
Shows are now sold out through June 30. The 81 new shows, which begin on July 10, will go on sale March 28 at 11 a.m., through Ticketmaster Verified Fan.
According to a press release: “In order to recognize the tremendous number of fans who previously participated but have not had the opportunity to shop for tickets, for this onsale, only fans who previously registered, and have not purchased tickets, will be eligible to receive an invitation to the onsale. Eligible fans will receive additional information on Monday, March 26th to prepare in advance.
“A digital lottery will continue to operate through the extension for fans interested in purchasing tickets after the March 28th onsale. For details, visit www.luckyseat.com.”
By the time the run is over, the total number of shows at the Walter Kerr Theatre, at 219 W. 48th St., will be 236. [Not a valid template]
I love Bruce Springsteen’s music, and more than that, his spirit. Tonight I listened to selections of Bruce’s music from 15 of his albums, spanning the years 1973 to 2014. I did this because tonight I had a dream about dancing with an angel…after I chose Bruce Springsteen’s song “Dancing in the Dark”. I spent some time talking to the angel (he’s a tall, burly “Warrior” and a Native American) about Bruce afterwards, and so I decided to listen to a good selection of Bruce’s songs. I think Bruce Springsteen is more than just an American Rockstar and an Ikon of our people and our times. I listened to many of his more inspiring songs tonight.. songs from the heart of a Christian, and I think, more than that. Bruce Springsteen is a bard for the American people…in fact, I suspect he is actually a modern day saint. The last songs that I heard tonight were “Blinded by the Light”, “How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live” and “We Shall Overcome”. This is a man who could have led our people into battle…a man who could have led our People through the greater battles of our time..the culture wars that we are facing as we rise to stand up to the oligarchs and the evil men who now control the destiny of our nation and our people. Bruce Springsteen is a tremendous Christian Soldier, and an inspiration to us all.
