Springsteen Tour Heads West
Newly added into the middle of the Boss' itinerary is his first show in San Francisco since 1978 and his first ever at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium.Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band's U.S. summer stadium tour has expanded with two dates on the West Coast. Newly added into the middle of the Boss' itinerary is his first show in San Francisco since 1978 and his first ever at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium.
On Aug. 16, the tour will visit Pacific Bell Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, followed the next day by the L.A. show. Tickets for both will go on sale Monday (July 28) at 10 a.m. PT via Ticketmaster.
There is no official word as to whether or not the itinerary is now complete. It was previously announced that the tour would end on or around Sept. 30; at present, the last show is Sept. 27 in Milwaukee.
Last night, the band played the fourth of 10 shows at New Jersey's Giants Stadium. Despite fierce thunderstorms which cropped up about halfway through the show, the show continued and delivered several rarities, including an encore appearance by one-time E Street Band drummer Vini "Mad Dog" Lopez.
