The Boss is returning to Broadway for a limited time.
Bruce Springsteen is bringing back his 2017 one-man show on Broadway, Springsteen on Broadway, with another limited residency at The Saint James' Theatre for over twenty shows this year.
This year's edition will be the first shows played at New York's famous theatre district since the COVID-19 pandemic began, with Springsteen playing dates from June 26 up until the final show on September 4.
His previous shows were played initially in 2017, which were then extended to 2018 due to high demand and issues with ticket scalpers. Fans will have to be fully vaccinated in order to attend the 2021 dates.
"I loved doing Springsteen on Broadway and I’m thrilled to have been asked to reprise the show as part of the reopening of Broadway," says Springsteen.
The previous shows resulted in a soundtrack album and Netflix special, which is still available to watch today.
Like during the other shows, The Boss plays intimate acoustic versions of his back catalogue, along with tales of growing up in New Jersey.
Hot Press's Stuart Clark enthused about the special, saying that "rarely have journeys down the rock 'n' roll highway been so exhilarating."
Springsteen also recently released his twentieth studio album and his first with The E Street Band since 2014's High Hopes, Letters to You.
The 2020 record was widely praised, with Hot Press's Pat Carty saying that "as the world dims, and hope seems extinguished, the light of rock n’ roll is more important than ever. Springsteen is a keeper – perhaps the keeper - of that flame, a holy charge that he remains more than equal to."
