Springsteen brings ‘The River’ tour to New Jersey
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announced on Friday 'The River' tour will come to the Prudential Center in Newark in January.
The River Tour stops in Newark on Sunday, Jan. 31 with area stops include January 24 and 27 at Madison Square Garden and the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on February 12. Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, Dec. 11. Each concert from the tour will be available as a downloads or CDs via Live.BruceSpringsteen.net within days of the performance.
The tour announcement is part of Friday's release of "The Ties That Bind: The River Collection," a box set that includes 52 tracks on four CDs, unreleased material, four hours of never-before-seen video on three DVDs, the original "The River" double album, a brand-new documentary about "The River," and a coffee-table book of 200 rare or previously unseen photos and memorabilia.
"This will be the second time that Bruce & The E Street Band rock The Rock so to speak," said Tom Cunningham, host of the Bruce Brunch on 105.7 The Hawk. "The first time was in 2012, as they concluded the first leg of the 'Wrecking Ball' tour there on May 2. Later that year, Bruce joined The Rolling Stones on that same stage. It's the only Jersey stop on the tour and will prove to be a tough ticket."
Springsteen is scheduled to host NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on Dec. 19.
