Tickets went on sale for Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway residency this morning, and despite the fact that they were only available through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan service, tickets inevitably showed up on StubHub and other resale sites. Those resold tickets were, of course, listed for an insane amount of money; Variety reports that the most expensive seat available on the secondary market was going for $7500. Here’s what StubHub looked like 10 minutes after tickets went on sale:
Interesting pricing at 10:10 a.m. for Bruce on Bway. Those verified fans sure think alike. pic.twitter.com/FvshoN1wVg

Soon after, “Springsteen On Broadway” announced that the show will be extended by 10 weeks and will run from 10/3 to 2/3. Ticketmaster announced that anyone who registered as a Verified Fan will still be eligible to receive an offer code to buy tickets to the new run of shows which will be on sale 9/7 at 10AM ET. You can still enroll in the Verified Fan program through 9/3 here.
Looks like I’m going to see Bruce Springsteen on Broadway after all! Hehe.
