Bruce Springsteen "The Boss" to make his Broadway Debut in Intimate Concert Series
The New York Post reports that rock legend, Bruce Springsteen, "The Boss", will play the Walter Kerr Theatre this Fall making his Broadway debut!
'“He wants to play a smaller house,” a source at the Kerr says. “He wants to try something more intimate, and he likes the idea of being on Broadway.”' (New York Post).
The dates for the intimate concert have not been set in stone yet, but the Kerr is aiming for a November open date, with performances five times a week. Some sources believe that this is a precursor to a bigger Broadway project, a musical based off of Springsteen's best selling memoir, "Born to Run".
"Bruce Springsteen is an American singer-songwriter. He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political sentiments centered on his native New Jersey, his distinctive voice, and his lengthy and energetic stage performances—with concerts from the 1970s to the present decade running at up to four hours in length.
Springsteen's recordings have included both commercially accessible rock albums and more somber folk-oriented works. His most successful studio albums, Born to Run (1975) and Born in the U.S.A. (1984), find pleasures in the struggles of daily American life. He has sold more than 120 million records worldwide and more than 64 million records in the United States, making him one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. He has earned numerous awards for his work, including 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, and an Academy Award as well as being inducted into both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1999. In 2009, Springsteen was a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, in 2013 was named MusiCares person of the year, and in 2016 was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom." (Wikipedia)
