It’s easy sometimes to forget what true genius is, until its right in front of you.”

Bruce Springsteen kündigte am 9. August 2017 insgesamt 39 Akustik Shows am New Yorker Broadway an. Wegen der grossen Ticketnachfrage wurde das Gastspiel am 30. August 2017 verlängert. “Springsteen on Broadway” wird nun bis zum 3. Februar 2018 im “Walter Kerr Theatre” laufen.

“Springsteen on Broadway” feiert am 3. Oktober 2017 Premiere. Der Künstler beschreibt seine Broadway Pläne mit folgenden Worten: “Ich wollte eine Show auf die Beine stellen, die so persönlich und intim wie nur möglich ist. Die Show besteht nur aus mir, einer Gitarre, einem Klavier sowie Worten und Musik”.

Weitere Informationen:

Springsteen on Broadway is a solo acoustic performance written and performed by Bruce Springsteen under the lights of Broadway. It is an intimate night with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and his stories. „My vision of these shows is to make them as personal and intimate as possible. I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theatre is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years. 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, all of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal—to communicate something of value,“ says Springsteen.
