Published Aug 28, 2017Bruce Springsteen will return to Toronto next month for a special performance at the closing ceremonies of the Invictus Games.
The sporting event was established in 2014 by Prince Harry to showcase the competitive athletic prowess of ill, wounded and injured active duty and veteran service members. This year, it runs from September 23 to 30 in Toronto, and will feature more than 550 athletes from 17 nations.
The September 23 opening ceremonies will feature performances from Canadian talent like Sarah McLachlan, Alessia Cara and the Tenors, while the freshly added Springsteen will wrap up the Games on September 30 at the Air Canada Centre on a bill that also includes Bryan Adams, Bachman & Turner, Coeur de Pirate and Kelly Clarkson.
"The Games are a remarkable opportunity for brothers and sisters in arms to join forces and demonstrate the true strength of their spirit," Springsteen said in a statement. "It is an absolute honour and privilege to perform for them at the Closing Ceremony as a send-off to a week of competition in Toronto."
Tickets are currently on sale, and start at $60 (though there are youth, senior and military veteran discounts available). You can purchase them here via Ticketmaster.
