If you plan on seeing the Boss make his Broadway debut this October, you may want to start the ticket-buying process now.
Tickets don't go on sale until August 30 at 10am, but Ticketmaster is kicking off “Verified Fan” registration today, a process that promises to “combat bots and get real tickets into the hands of fans.” Those who register to become verified will be alerted as soon as tickets go on sale at the end of the month. You can start the registration process here.
“Springsteen on Broadway” kicks off with previews on October 3 at the intimate Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street) in New York City, and the official opening date is October 12.
In a release sent out today, Springsteen remarks that the venue—at a modest 960 seats—is one of the smallest venues he's played in the past 40 years. He describes the show “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.”
According to springsteen.net, the show will run eight weeks in total: October 3–7, 10–11, 13–14, 17–21, 24–28 and 31; and November 1–4, 7–11, 14–18, 21–22 and 24–26.
