Bruce Springsteen Extends Broadway Run by 10 Weeks

“Springsteen on Broadway,” Bruce Springsteen’s buzzmagnet concert engagement that opens on Broadway in October, has extended by a whopping 10 weeks, stretching the run to Feb. 3.

The extension, announced on Twitter, comes hours after the start of sales for the dates that were initially announced (Oct. 3-Nov. 26). Even with the preregistration required by Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan service, tickets hit the secondary market soon after the start of sales, with prices climbing as high as $7500. Ticketmaster addressed the problem earlier this morning, warning fans to be “vigilant” and resist the urge to buy from the secondary markets.

In a series of images posted in a follow-up tweet, Ticketmaster went on to announce that tickets to original run had sold out. The Verified Fan registration period for the new ticket block is now open and closes Sept. 3 at 10:00 pm, with tickets then going on sale Sept. 7 at 10:00 am. The hopefuls who registered as Verified Fans for the initial chunk of tickets, but didn’t manage to score in that first round, don’t need to register again.

In “Springsteen on Broadway,” the musician’s first run of solo dates since 2005’s “Devils & Dust” tour, the singer is expected to perform songs drawn from all eras of his career, interspersed with readings of his best-selling memoir “Born to Run.” At less than 1,000 seats, the Walter Kerr Theater — the Broadway venue in which Springsteen will play — is a fraction of the size of the arenas that Springsteen usually plays.
