Bruce Springsteen to play three shows in condemned Giants Stadium this fall

Posted on

During a concert at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J., on Thursday, Bruce Springsteen announced that he plans on playing three shows at nearby Giants Stadium on Sept. 30 and Oct. 2 and 3, shortly before that arena is to be razed, Reuters reports.

The Boss is wrapping up his current U.S. tour, during which he and the E Street Band have played to sell-out crowds around the country. In fact, despite his reputation as a populist performer, fans have complained that too few tickets were made available via Ticketmaster to this week’s series of Garden State shows, and that the bulk of the seats were set aside for promotions and people with connections.
