AARP Bruce Springsteen has filled the seats in every kind of venue, from Jersey Shore bars to massive football stadiums. But it’s been decades since he’s regularly played small venues.
That’s about to change. Springsteen, 67, announced this week that he’s going to play a residency at a Broadway theater in New York from early October until late November. Preview performances for the residency begin Oct. 3; it is scheduled to end Nov. 26.
Springsteen will perform at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre. It has 960 seats, which he says is the smallest venue he’s played in the last 40 years “with one or two exceptions.”
“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,” Springsteen said in a statement.
