Tickets sold out within a day for initial shows
Due to overwhelming ticket demand, Bruce Springsteen has extended his “Springsteen on Broadway” solo run through February 2018. Springsteen will make his Broadway debut this fall with the solo show at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street). Performances for “Springsteen on Broadway” begin Tuesday, October 3rd with an official opening on Thursday, October 12th. Springsteen will perform five shows a week through February 3rd.
Shows through November 26th sold out within a day, but the newly announced performances for “Springsteen on Broadway” will go on sale September 7th at 10 am ET exclusively through Ticketmaster Verified Fan. This unique fan-first technology levels the playing field to combat bots and get real tickets into the hands of fans who intend to go to the event.
Ticketmaster Verified Fan registration is open now and will close September 3rd at 10 pm ET. Verified fans will be notified September 6th for the September 7th on-sale. Fans who have previously registered for Verified Fan through Springsteen on Broadway do not need to register again. Registration will carryover for anyone who did not successfully purchase tickets.
“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible,” Springsteen says. “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.”
“Bruce Springsteen is one of our greatest musical storytellers, and Broadway is built on a beloved tradition of musical storytelling. What a once-in-a lifetime thrill for all of us at Jujamcyn to welcome Bruce home to his rightful place in the Broadway legacy,” says Jordan Roth, President of Jujamcyn Theaters, which owns the Walter Kerr.
The creative team for “Springsteen on Broadway” includes Heather Wolensky (scenic design), Natasha Katz (lighting design) and Brian Ronan (sound design).
