To say that tickets for Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band’s upcoming tour in support of his new album, “Magic,” are a hot commodity would be the understatement of the year. In addition to the many ticket auction sites, Boss fans should check out Charity buzz, which is auctioning off a pair of tickets to every concert on his 18-date tour.
Musicians On Call and The Kristen Ann Carr Fund have secured a pair of tickets for all 18 shows on Springsteen’s Fall 2007 U.S. Tour. All seats are general admission tickets in the pit or in the first tier. All winning bids will be tax deductible above the face value of the tickets. Bidding starts at $200 a pair and can be picked up at the “Will Call” window on the evening of the concert.
Musicans On Call brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities through bedside performances and CD Pharmacies. To date, MOC volunteer musicians have played for over 88,000 patients, their families, and caregivers.
The Kristen Ann Carr Fund provides grants for cancer research and seeks to improve all aspects of a cancer patient’s life, with an emphasis on adolescents and young adults. It should also be noted that Carr is the daughter of Springsteen’s co-manager Barbara Carr, and biographer, Dave Marsh, who started the fund in 1993. Carr died at the age of 21 from sarcoma, a rare and deadly type of cancer.
