I have never been to a Springsteen concert, or any rock concert for that matter, but I hear he is one of the best live performers.

I have never seen Springsteen live but even if he did play around here I couldn't get anyone to go with me. He came around a few years ago and I asked my brother to go with me and he said no because he didn't want to sit there for 3 hours. That is the response I get from everyone.

Go alone. Don’t miss out on experiences because of other people. Plus, most Springsteen fans are super friendly. It’s a big community.

Re: Bruce Springsteen - Letter To You - 10/23/20

Announcement should be at 9am eastern tomorrow.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Boss is hitting the road again, and the band is coming with him.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announced Monday that they will begin an arena tour in February in the United States, followed by stadium shows beginning in April in Europe.

Few details about cities the rockers will visit were announced, but it’ll be the first time the group has toured since wrapping The River Tour in Australia in February 2017.

“After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year,” Springsteen said in a statement.

The European concerts will begin April 28th in Barcelona. Other stops in Europe will include Dublin, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. The tour plans several shows in Britain, but exact cities weren’t announced.

No details on which U.S. cities the tour will travel to were announced, but North American dates will be split into two segments. The second leg of that tour will begin in August.

Damn... only overseas dates so far.

I've seen some people say that Tampa is the kickoff in February.

I've seen Bruce about 7 times dating back to the Reunion Tour. The longest show I saw was 3 hours and 45 min on the River Tour from a few years back. Always amazing live!

One of my favorite live Bruce moments was during a solo tour for Devils and Dust the arena was struck by lighting and everything lost power except the generators backing Bruce's mic and piano. So he played I Wish I Were Blind for all of us in the dark.

Yeah, hoping Canada gets an announcement! (Probably the usual Vancouver and Toronto only) but I'd travel to New York to see Bruce there.
We don't have many tours left from this legend and his band so see him as much as possible.

I've been dying to hear Ghosts live.

The best part of these overseas shows, though, is that they usually yield some amazing results in the Live releases they do on the website. I have well over 100 shows now from the various eras so I'll go "on tour" digitally until a show comes close enough to travel to see

There is still supposed to be an announcement at 9am... at least according to E Street Radio.

Apparently the NYC/NJ area shows will be in April. Then, of course, the stadiums in the late summer/fall.

I am tentatively scheduled to be in Helsinki in June next year a few days before the Sweden shows. I may have to consider that. I've seen him over 25 times, but never in Europe. Those crowds are insane.

Finland would be an amazing place to see The Boss. Helsinki is the spot where he played his longest show to date. 4 hours and 6 minutes!!!

I guess the 9am thing was just Bruce calling in on E Street Radio.

Yeah, I gather the rehearsals in Asbury Park will be the usual. The US (and hopefully Canada) Leg will get announced next week?

I don't think so. They haven't done ticketed rehearsal in Asbury since 2009. Convention Hall is not deemed safe for occupancy at the moment. I believe they rehearse in Trenton now. I would love if they started opening those up again. The one I went to in 2009 was amazing.

Some people think it may be a while before the US dates... I guess they haven't finalized arena contracts yet. Kind of a weird roll out.

Oh interesting, I didn't know that they moved spots.

Well, I've waited 6 years for Bruce live. I can wait a little longer.

Ugh... Verified Fan. This just became a lot more difficult. I guess I will have to rely on fan community for tickets.

So nothing announced West of the Rockies. What a surprise.
Edit : I missed Seattle. Doesn't help much.

My first thought was maybe he is playing Coachella on the Sundays, but going from NJ to CA with a day in between could be a bit much.

He needs to find a new LA venue since they demolished the LA Memorial Sports Arena.

I didn't kbow that. I saw him there in 1988. Best concert I have ever been to. And the only time I ever went into that building.
Why doesn't he play The Forum? I hear it's like everyone's favorite venue to play for some reason (like acoustics or something).
