Report: Bruce Springsteen Extending Broadway Run Through June

Music News

Word on the street is that Bruce Springsteen will be stretching his Broadway run through June. Variety posted that reps for the production itself would not confirm that an extension is in the works. According to info provided by The Broadway League, the “Springsteen On Broadway” show — which began previews on October 3rd and officially opened nine days later — earned a cool $2.33 million in its first seven days of sales. Several high profile stars were spotted in the crowd during the past few shows — Billy Joel was on hand on Wednesday night (October 18th) and also attending this week were Oprah Winfrey with Gayle King.

Springsteen peppers the show with classic stories from his childhood — including the incredible influence Elvis Presley had on his life and work: “I remember really clearly the initial performance, y’know, Elvis (Presley) on The Ed Sullivan Show. It was. . . I was only nine. It must’ve been very galvanizing ’cause I ran out, we rented a guitar, y’know, you could rent a guitar and I started to take lessons. But the way they taught you in those days, it was so slow and painstaking — and it was not rock n’ roll whatsoever. So — and I was little and my hands were little and I was just too young, so I had it for a few months and gave it up and picked it up at 14. But that was the initial jolt of all you knew is you want to do that, y’know? You wanted to (laughs) do it.”
