Bruce Springsteen’s ever-popular residency at the Walter Kerr Theatre has been extended once again, this time into the summer of 2018.
The show was originally scheduled to run for eight weeks, but just hours after tickets went on sale back in August, it was more than doubled.
With all remaining performances sold out, Ticketmaster has now announced a third extension. Bruce will remain on Broadway for performances from February 28 through June 30, 2018.
#SpringsteenBroadway EXTENDED into Summer 2018!
Due to overwhelming participation in the original Onsale powered by Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan, there will be NO additional registration for the extension.

Rumors flew about a possible extension back in October when the New York Post released article with an attached note that read:
“You read it here first: “Springsteen on Broadway” will extend its run past February, possibly even till June. Bruce Springsteen is having the time of his life, and the show is sensational, even for someone like myself who’s more partial to Engelbert Humperdinck than the Boss.”
It was strange and unofficial but apparently, a spot-on prediction.
Tickets for the additional Springsteen on Broadway performances will go on sale December 19 through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program, and will not require re-registration for those who already signed up for the first few runs.
“Fans who previously registered and were verified but placed on Standby and did not receive a code, and fans who received a code but were unsuccessful in purchasing tickets will be contacted with further information about the added shows,” Ticketmaster clarified.
