Bruce Springsteen Heading to Broadway For Intimate Shows

Bruce Springsteen is about to make a limited run on Broadway!

The Grammy award winning performer just confirmed that he will be headlining Springsteen on Broadway during an eight-week run later this year.

The shows are set to take place NYC’s Walter Kerr Theater, which has less than 1,000 seats, making for an extremely intimate experience!

“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as 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,” Bruce said in a statement.

He added, “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. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.”

Springsteen on Broadway begins previews October 3rd and will run October 12th through November 26th.

Tom Hanks & Bruce Springsteen Pay Tribute to Jonathan Demme at Tribeca

In Jonathan‘s 1993 film Philadelphia, Tom took home the best actor Academy Award, while Bruce took home an Oscar for the movie’s opening song, “Streets of Philadelphia.”

“I think the strongest union of our two names is probably Philadelphia,” Tom told the crowd. “God bless Jonathan Demme. We just lost him.”

“He was such an inspirational guy,” Bruce added. “No Jonathan Demme, no Philadelphia, no ‘Streets of Philadelphia.’ [Jonathan] wanted more of a rock song for the beginning, so I said I’d give it a shot. I tried for a day or so to come up with something, and I didn’t come up with anything. I had some lyrics. Eventually, I just came up with that tiny little beat and the track, and I figured it wasn’t what he wanted but I sent it to him anyway. He sent me that opening piece of film where the camera moves slowly through Philly, and I said, ‘What do you think?’ And he says, ‘Great.’ And that was it. It took about two days.”

“Well, I have to tell you,” Tom chimed in, “if you ever want to have a great moment in a motion picture, walk out a door and make sure they just put up a Bruce Springsteen song.”

Bruce Springsteen Reveals Why He Didn't Pay Taxes In The 70s

Bruce Springsteen is opening up about getting into some trouble with the law for not paying his taxes.

The 67-year-old musician explained that back in the 1970s, he didn’t know anyone who was paying their taxes!

“First of all, I never met anyone in New Jersey who paid any taxes! We never paid any taxes,” Bruce said during a Tribeca Talk.

He added, “Then when we got with [manager] Mike Appel. He was handling all our business and his thing was, ‘We’re not paying any f**king taxes.’ So, years went by and…all of this time went by. Nobody’s paying taxes — me, the band, no one I know.”

Bruce explained that the IRS caught up to him when they noticed him on the cover of Time magazine in 1975.

“They came after us and I had to work for a couple years for somebody else every night. Then we had to pay lawyers. In 1980, I think I had about $20,000 to my name,” Bruce added.

Bruce Springsteen is joining forces with tons of others who have been speaking out about President Donald Trump‘s immigration ban.

The 67-year-old singer addressed the “Muslim ban” during a concert on Monday (January 30) in Adelaide, Australia.

“Tonight, we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting at airports around our country the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign nationals and refugees,” Bruce told the crowd. “America is a nation of immigrants and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American.”
