Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will extend “The River” tour to American stadiums this summer, including two shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, in August.
The stadium leg of “The River” will likely not feature Springsteen and The E Street Band performing the classic double album in its entirety, after The Boss announced onstage that the Barclays Center show on April 25 was the final official performance of the album in its entirety. The tour kicks off on Aug. 23 at MetLife Stadium and runs through Sept. 14 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Tickets for the MetLife shows on Aug. 23 and 25 go on sale at 10 a.m. on May 18 through Ticketmaster.
The tour is set to wrap up shortly before Springsteen is set to release his autobiography “Born to Run” through Simon & Schuster on Sept. 27, a project he has privately been working on for seven years. “Writing about yourself is a funny business,” Springsteen writes in the book. “But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.”
