Bruce Springsteen adds a second Fenway Park performance
With the first week of the European leg now complete, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have expanded the domestic portion of the run, adding a second night in Boston's Fenway Park.
The Boss and crew will finish up the remaining 28 European performances, taking them through the end of July, before returning stateside for the Aug. 14 kick-off of the second U.S. leg in Boston. Since last check, a second Boston performance at Fenway Park has been set for Aug. 15, followed by an Aug. 18 concert in Foxborough, MA.
That eight-city portion of North American gigs runs through a three-night stand Sept. 19, 21-22 in East Rutherford, NJ.
Springsteen and his E Street Band, comprised of Roy Bittan (piano, synthesizer), Nils Lofgren (guitar, vocals), Patti Scialfa (guitar, vocals), Garry Tallent (bass guitar), Stevie Van Zandt (guitar, vocals), Max Weinberg (drums) and Jake Clemons (saxophone), the nephew of the late Clarence Clemons, has been joined by Soozie Tyrell on violin, guitar and vocals, and Charlie Giordano on keyboards for the roadwork.
"Wrecking Ball," Springsteen's 17th studio album, surfaced March 5, just two weeks before he delivered the keynote address at the 26th annual South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, TX. The 50-minute speech is currently streaming at NPR's website.
The Columbia Records release, Springsteen's first since 2009's "Working on a Dream," topped The Billboard 200, as well as the magazine's Rock Albums, Digital Albums and Tastemaker Albums charts. The set also hit No. 1 in 14 international markets.
