Bruce Springsteen announces Glasgow show

Bruce Springsteen has announced four UK stadium shows for this summer – including a visit to Scotland’s Hampden Park on 1 June.

Following phenomenal, same day sell-outs of several European announcements last week, Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band will be returning to the UK this summer to bring their The River Tour to stadiums across the country.

Starting in Manchester on the 25 May at the Etihad Stadium the tour will then continue to Glasgow’s Hampden Park on 1 of June, Coventry’s Ricoh Arena and will culminate at London’s Wembley Stadium on 5 June.

Tickets go on sale 9am Thursday, 25 February from www.gigsinscotland.com

The tour comes in the wake of the release of The Ties That Bind: The River via Columbia Records.

The 4-disc offering celebrates the 35th anniversary of Springsteen’s 1980 double-disc classic, The River and includes the 22 outtakes from the original The River sessions, half of which had never been previously released.

Speaking on The River Tour in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Bruce Springsteen said: “We stand toe-to-toe with any version of our band that’s been out there.

“It’s a richer experience now because there is so much material to draw from. And that shared history you have with people makes the night very full, very beautiful.”
