Bruce Springsteen Extends Broadway Residency by 10 Weeks

Earlier this month, Bruce Springsteen announced plans for a run of "personal and intimate" performances this fall at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre. While the run of dates was initially supposed to stop in November, the Boss will now play shows at the theatre for an additional 10 weeks.

The extension comes after tickets for the initial run of dates, from October 12 to November 26, went on sale through Ticketmaster's Verified Fan service. Inevitably, tickets ended up on secondhand market sites such as StubHub with some seats going for $7,500, as Variety reports.

After urging fans to resist buying from scalpers, Ticketmaster extended the run of shows by 10 weeks, running until February 3 of next year. Further information about Verified Fan registration and the added dates can be found below.

As previously reported, each performance will find Springsteen sharing anecdotes from his career and reading excerpts from his Born to Run autobiography.

"My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music," Springsteen explained. "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."
