European run of small venues brings in $10.2 million.
Bruce Springsteen's sold-out small venue run through Europe grossed more than $10.2 million and drew 130,664 people, according to a source close to the tour.
The tour began May 24 in Dublin at the Point and wrapped June 28 at the ICC in Berlin, and included 18 shows. The European run followed a brief U.S. tour that grossed about $4.5 million.
Springsteen is back on North American soil, continuing the tour in support of his latest record, Devils & Dust. The current leg begins tonight at the Corel Centre in Ottawa, and continues until Aug. 13 at the Pontiac Theatre at GM Place in Vancouver, B.C.
Springsteen manager Jon Landau told Billboard.biz in an earlier interview that more dates will likely be added, in response to both critical and financial success.
"I would, as a proud manager, say that in terms of single artist shows you would have to go a long, long way to find something more compelling," Landau said. "The European shows, which are always intense, have been remarkable. In its own way, these have been as emotional an experience as the rock shows."
Springsteen is booked by longtime agent Barry Bell, in conjunction with CAA.
