If You Want to See Bruce Springsteen Next Year, You May Need to Hit Broadway; Run Extended

by VVN Music

Bruce Springsteen is one big draw on Broadway.

Playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre with maximum seating of 948 per performance, Springsteen is selling out with his Thanksgiving week take being $2,393,435.  That's just for ONE week.

Of course, Springsteen has the highest average ticket price on Broadway at $504.94. Hamilton is second with a mere $321.13 and Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! is fourth with an average price of $211.68.  By the way, both Hamilton and Dolly do eight performances per week.  Springsteen only does five.

With those kind of numbers, it's no wonder that Bruce has extended his "limited run" on the Great White Way by another four months, taking him through June 30.

Now, here's the bad news for fans that didn't try to initially get tickets.  No additional availability is expected for the extra four months of the run.  Those that applied for the initial dates and the first extension but were not selected in the lottery will be contacted and offered spots.

The press release read:

Due to overwhelming participation in the original Onsale powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan®, there will be no additional registration for this extension. Fans who previously registered and were verified but placed on Standby and did not receive a code, and fans who received a code but were unsuccessful in purchasing tickets will be contacted by Ticketmaster with further information about the added shows.

Here is what Springsteen has been playing:
  • Growin' Up (from Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ, 1973)
