Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to Australia and New Zealand.
For one month Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be calling Australia and New Zealand home, with nine shows sure to delight fans who have rabidly been monitoring the international movements of The River Tour. Indeed, those overseas dates have had critics and fans alike in raptures.
“Springsteen was the consummate, gimmick-free showman.” Evening Standard UK
“Springsteen’s stamina, exuberance and ability to connect remain unrivalled.” Guardian UK
“For all his squillions of record sales, the live arena is where [Springsteen] and his band truly excel.” The Telegraph, UK
Named the top global touring act of 2016 by both Billboard and Pollstar, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have sold close to 2 million tickets in 2016 alone.
In further exciting news - and perhaps evidence that no one can say no to Bruce - one of Australia's most successful rock bands of all time, Jet, will be reforming to hit the road with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, appearing as very special guests at their outdoor concerts in Melbourne, Hanging Rock, Hunter Valley, Christchurch and Auckland.
Jet quickly conquered the world after forming in 2001, selling more than 6.5 million albums globally and securing 10 x Platinum certification in Australia and Platinum in the USA and UK for their debut album Get Born. They produced a string of classic singles in Are You Gonna Be My Girl, Rollover DJ, Look What You've Done, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is, Rip It Up, and Seventeen before disbanding in 2012. The band have turned down numerous requests to reform in the ensuing years… until now!
Appearing in Christchurch and Auckland alongside Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and Jet, will be local Kiwi favourite Marlon Williams & the Yarra Benders. Since releasing his self-titled album at the start of last year, Marlon has toured extensively throughout North America and UK/Europe including spots on some of the world’s leading music festivals.
If the Summer ’17 Tour seems too far away, Springsteen fans can treat themselves to some quality time with Bruce with the release of his autobiography Born To Run (out September 27 through Simon & Schuster) and its audio companion Chapter And Verse (out September 23 through Sony Australia). Bruce first began working on the autobiography in 2009, after performing at the Super Bowl’s halftime show. The 500-page autobiography promises a glimpse behind the scenes at the extraordinary life of Bruce Springsteen. Chapter And Verse features 18 tracks from across Bruce’s career, including 5 previously unreleased songs.
