Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to Australia.
Last on our shores in 2014 for a sold out run of shows, the summer of 2017 will see Bruce and his legendary band undertake one of their biggest tours here to date, visiting Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Hanging Rock, Hunter Valley and Brisbane.
For a month, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be calling Australia home, with shows sure to delight fans who have rabidly been monitoring the international movements of The River Tour. Indeed, those overseas dates have had critics and fans alike in raptures.
“Springsteen was the consummate, gimmick-free showman.” - Evening Standard UK
“Springsteen’s stamina, exuberance and ability to connect remain unrivalled.” - Guardian UK
“For all his squillions of record sales, the live arena is where [Springsteen] and his band truly excel.” - The Telegraph, UK
Named the top global touring act of 2016 by both Billboard and Pollstar, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have sold close to 2 million tickets in 2016 alone.
In further exciting news - and perhaps evidence that no one can say no to Bruce - one of Australia's most successful rock bands of all time, Jet, will be reforming to hit the road with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, appearing as very special guests at their outdoor concerts in Melbourne, Hanging Rock and Hunter Valley.
Guitar legend Diesel will appear as special guest in Hanging Rock and Hunter Valley. In July Diesel released his 15th career album Americana, a celebration of some of America’s most legendary music. Fittingly the album includes his interpretation of the classic ‘Born To Run’.
In Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform the concerts in their entirety, with no special guests.
If the Summer ’17 Tour seems too far away, Springsteen fans can treat themselves to some quality time with Bruce with the release of his autobiography Born To Run (out September 27 through Simon & Schuster) and its audio companion Chapter And Verse (out September 23 through Sony Australia). Bruce first began working on the autobiography in 2009, after performing at the Super Bowl’s halftime show. The 500-page autobiography promises a glimpse behind the scenes at the extraordinary life of Bruce Springsteen. Chapter And Verse features 18 tracks from across Bruce’s career, including 5 previously unreleased songs.
