There's "big news" and then there's BIG NEWS! When you hear Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are coming to your town, it's the latter. And yes, South Florida, we've got the Boss coming our way, not once, but twice, this Spring. Praise be!
Granted, the tour will make its way to Sunrise's BB&T Center only once on April 29, but just a short drive away, and you can can catch two Boss sessions in one week at Tampa's inaugural Big Guava Festival on May 1. Incredible.
Don't lie, you're totally psyched. You're running down to the river and dancing in the dark. The tour kicked off on January 26 in South Africa, and will be making its way through the Pacific area of the Earth all the way to South Florida. Presumably, Bruce and co.'ll be performing songs off his High Hopes release.
Tickets go on sale February 15 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster. Buy them, and we'll see you there. We'll be the ones weeping to "Thunder Road" in our red bandanas and tightest jeans.
