Bruce Springsteen sold out a stadium that can hold over 50,000 New Yorkers three times last year, but now, he’s launching a series of very intimate shows on BROADWAY.
Beginning in October, he’s going to do eight weeks of shows at the Walter Kerr Theater, which has a capacity under 1,000. They are solo shows that will run five nights a week, Tuesday through Saturday.
It’s called “Springsteen on Broadway”, and in addition to singing, he’ll read excerpts from his 2016 autobiography “Born to Run.” He said, “[It’s] just me, the guitar, the piano, and the words and music.”
He chose Broadway because, “it has the beautiful old theaters which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. In fact, with one or two exceptions, [the theater’s] 960 seats is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years.”
