Bruce Springsteen Tacks on Late Fall 2012 North American Dates
Bruce Springsteen has certainly made the most of touring in Europe this summer, but “The Boss” will be back in the good ol’ U.S. of A. this fall.
Not touring his homeland hasn’t really hurt Springsteen so far this year, as his European run has already generated over $80 million in global box office grosses, currently second behind Roger Waters as the top tour of the year.
Springsteen just announced 16 new U.S. and Canadian dates, beginning Oct. 19 in Ottawa, Ontario and running through Dec. 6 in Glendale, Ariz. The latest dates serve as the second North American leg, following a late summer run that kicks off with two nights at Boston’s Fenway Park Aug. 14-15.
Tickets for the Kansas City show go on sale Aug. 3, with the St. Paul and State College going on sale a day later (Aug. 4). Hartford goes on sale Aug. 10; Denver Aug. 13; Pittsburgh, Ottawa, Hamilton, and Louisville Aug. 17; Omaha Aug. 18; and Glendale (Sept. 15), Charlottesville (Sept. 14), Oakland (Sept. 21), and Vancouver (Sept. 28) going on sale next month. On-sale dates for Portland and Anaheim have yet to be revealed.
Bruce and the E Street Band have had a memorable summer overseas. In Paris, Springsteen invited his full-grown daughter to join him onstage to dance to the classic track ‘Dancing in the Dark.’ The Roots were surprise guests with Bruce in Denmark. The London Hyde Park show made worldwide headlines when officials pulled the plug on Springsteen and special guest Paul McCartney due to curfew violations. A few days later in Dublin, Bruce pulled a six-year-old duet partner out of the audience for a performance, and most recently Springsteen and Steven Van Zandt made a surprise appearance at the Norway Memorial concert.
