The report that Bruce Springsteen will stage a residency at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre this fall has been confirmed. The bossman's solo show takes over the theater starting Tuesday, October 3 through November 26, with five shows a week. And just like a regular Broadway production, there'll be a few weeks of previews before the official opening performance on Thursday, October 12.
Tickets go on sale August 30 at 10am, and to get a shot at those you'll want to be a Ticketmaster verified fan. The deadline to pre-register for that program is August 27.
What to expect over the course of the two-month run? Bruce himself explains it thus:
“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.”
