A tweet today from Bruce Springsteen’s account read: “So brothers and sisters, wherever you are … let’s light up this house! Join Bruce live next week for a special #LetterToYou release event with @applemusic.”
The online event, presented by Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlist, takes place Oct. 22 at 11 a.m. ET and is open to Apple Music subscribers. For information, visit ticketing.apple.com/brucespringsteen. Free subscription trials are available at apple.com/apple-music.
The Springsteen account’s initial Tweet said the event is U.S. only but a followup Tweet said, “Fans outside of the US will also be able to watch the event! Stay tuned for more info soon.”
