The Boss is coming to Broadway — yet he’s dumping the E Street Band.
Bruce Springsteen said Wednesday on his site that he intends to make his Broadway make a big appearance in front of an audience this fall at the Walter Kerr Theater in a performance appear in which he performs melodies from his vocation, scattered with readings of his top of the line journal “Destined to Run.”
“Springsteen on Broadway” begins previews Oct. 3 ahead of an Oct. 12 opening at the intimate 960-seat venue. The eight-week run is expected to play through Nov. 26. Springsteen will perform five shows a week.
“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said in a statement. “My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music. Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work.”
