American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, often referred to simply as The Boss, is one of the nation’s legendary contemporary musicians. His recording career has spanned three decades and his chart-topping streak makes him one of the all-time top-selling musicians.
On the road, Springsteen’s concerts often fetch top-dollar, whether he’s performing solo or with his iconic E Street Band. Some of the best known members of the backing band include guitarist Steven Van Zandt, saxophonist Clarence Clemons and drummer Max Weinberg, all of whom have built successful careers outside of the group.
Springsteen is a regular fixture on the touring circuit, and despite the frequency and length of his tours, he remains one of the top-selling acts on the road. As with any popular and time-tested recording artist, Springsteen’s ticket sales regular place him in the top of TicketNews’s exclusive events rankings.
