Rock legend Bruce Springsteen recently announced additional performances for Springsteen on Broadway, his acclaimed one man show. Playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre, Springsteen on Broadway will have another 81 performances from July 10 to December 19. As part of the announcement, Springsteen said that the first round of tickets will go on sale through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan Program on March 29th at 11 a.m. ET for fans who have previously registered for the show but were unable to get tickets. After this first round of ticket sales, more tickets will be sold through a digital lottery on Lucky Seat.
Springsteen initially planned a limited run at the Walter Kerr Theatre and has repeatedly added additional performances to accommodate the demands of his fans. Springsteen on Broadway was originally set to only run from October 3 to November 26 of last year, but sold out crowds led the singer-songwriter to add additional shows last year. With these latest rounds of performances, Springsteen on Broadway will have played at the Walter Kerr Theatre 236 times.
Springsteen on Broadway has received rave reviews from critics. A key part of the show’s universal acclaim is due to the simplicity of the performance, with Springsteen playing alone with his guitar and piano. In part spoken word, Springsteen on Broadway follows the singer through his storied career, with standouts such as “Thunder Road” and “Born in the U.S.A.” being part of every show’s setlist. At times, Springsteen even reads excerpts from his 2016 autobiography, Born to Run. The venue has also generated much acclaim for the show. Seating a mere 975 people, the small crowd adds to the intimacy of the show as Springsteen reminisces on some of the most personal experiences from his career.
