Springsteen Might Perform At Citi Field

An article by posted on January 2, 2012

According to Stan Goldstein, the notable Bruce Springsteen biographer and author, “The Boss” may be performing at Citi Field for at least one night during their 2012 World Tour which is set to begin in May following the release of their new album and end in the fall when the band returns to the United States.

One thing that has been confirmed is that Springsteen will be touring with the E Street Band minus, of course, the great saxophonist Clarence Clemons who passed away last June.

The internet is buzzing with the news and one rock music site speculates that there will performances slated for either MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands, Yankee Stadium, Citi Field or even all three outdoor venues sometime around August or September. There is also the possibility of one indoor show, most likely at the Prudential Center.

During the holidays, Springsteen surprised fans when he appeared on stage during Bob Seger’s recent Madison Square Garden concert. The two rock legends performed one of Seger’s best loved songs,  “Old Time Rock and Roll.”

Seger introduces Springsteen by telling the audience he has “a special Christmas treat” for them as Springsteen walked onto the stage to the roar of the crowd.

Enjoy this video I found of the performance:

I’m a huge Springsteen fan and those following me on Facebook would see that in the last couple of days my playlist has included at least a dozen different Springsteen classics. I’ve seen him in concert three times.
