Auctions of tickets for sold-out shows on Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s upcoming River Tour will raise money for two organizations: Musicians on Call, and the Kristen Ann Carr Fund. The former organization brings music to patients in health care facilities; the latter supports sarcoma research and making life easier for those with sarcoma.
Currently, four-ticket package for four shows — the tour’s opening night at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Jan. 16, and shows at the United Center in Chicago, Jan. 19, and at Madison Square Garden in New York, Jan. 24 and 27 — are being auctioned, though plans call for all shows on the tour, including the Jan. 31 concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, to be added.
According to a tweet by Springsteen, the winning bidders will also be given access to the backstage “E Street Lounge.”
