A blazing hot summer is about to come next year as Bruce Springsteen and his legendary band E Street Band return to Australia for a slew of dates, bringing their intense energy and performances to venues in Perth (with three consecutive shows), Adelaide, Melbourne (with two consecutive performances), Sydney (with two consecutive performances), Mount Macedon, Brisbane (with two consecutive shows) and Hunter Valley.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be delighting diehard fans who have 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
In 2016 alone, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have sold close to 2 million tickets, earning them the title as the top global touring act of 2016 by both Billboard and Pollstar.
To fuel the excitement, 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 also be a special guest in Hanging Rock and Hunter Valley. Diesel has just released his 15th career album Americana, a celebration of some of America’s most legendary music, last July. 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.
In the meantime, while waiting for the Summer ’17 Tour, 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 complementary audio 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.
Grab your tickets and let Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band warm your hearts with their music!
