“Springsteen On Broadway” announced today that its 16-week series of performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York will be extended for a second time, with additional shows now set to run from Feb. 28 through June 30.
Springsteen’s one-man show began previews on Oct. 3 and officially opened on Oct. 12, with the initial run slated to go through Nov. 26. It was extended through Feb. 18 before the first performance even happened, due in large part to overwhelming demand. For the extended run into June, the show will stick with its Ticketmaster Verified Fan service, meaning no additional registration is needed for anyone who previously registered and were verified. Those who were placed on standby and didn’t receive a code, or those who received a code but were unsuccessful in purchasing tickets, will be contacted by Ticketmaster with further information about the added shows, according to a press release. A digital lottery will continue to operate through the extension for fans interested in purchasing tickets after the Dec. 19 on-sale date.
