In June, the news broke that Bruce Springsteen would be playing an eight-week solo residency at the 1,000-capacity Walter Kerr Theatre on Broadway, and today he’s officially announced the details behind the run of shows. Springsteen On Broadway will kick off in previews on 10/3 and have an official opening on 10/12; he’ll perform five shows a week through 11/26. Tickets for the shows will go on sale on 8/30 at 10AM EST. You can pre-register for tickets here. Here’s a quote from Springsteen about the residency:
I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible. 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 Theatre is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years. 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.
