Bruce Springsteen to make Broadway debut in October

The Boss is coming to Broadway.

Bruce Springsteen will make his Great White Way debut this fall with “Springsteen on Broadway,” a loosely autobiographical solo show designed to be “intimate” and “personal” at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

Performances begin Oct. 3, with an official opening on Oct. 12. Springsteen will perform five shows a week through Nov. 26.

“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,” Springsteen, 67, said in a statement.

“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,” he added. “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.”

With a career spanning five decades and records sales of more than 120 million worldwide, Springsteen has a  massive music catalog and a fanbase to match. Combined with the limited number of seats — just 945 — at the Walter Kerr, demand for tickets for the show marking the history-making Broadway debut of the Boss will be through the roof.

Tickets for “Springsteen on Broadway” will go on sale Aug. 30 at 10 a.m. ET on Ticketmaster Verified Fan. Visit brucespringsteen.net/broadway for more information about how to pre-register.
