Legendary performer Bruce Springsteen is headed to Broadway according to a report from the New York Post. The Post’s Broadway reporter Michael Riedel reveals The Boss will perform an eight-week run this fall at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City.
While there’s yet to be any confirmation from Bruce’s camp, Riedel says his sources feel “Springsteen will do a pared-down version of the set he usually performs in huge arenas and stadiums all over the world.” The report states dates haven’t been finalized, yet the run will likely begin in November at which point The Boss is expected to perform five times per week. With a capacity of just 975, look for the shows to sell out in an instant.
“He wants to play a smaller house,” a source at the Kerr tells Riedel. “He wants to try something more intimate, and he likes the idea of being on Broadway.” There’s no word as to whether Bruce will perform solo or with the E Street Band. Springteen doesn’t currently have any confirmed dates on the books. Stay tuned!
