The Boss’ fall tour now includes an additional 16 North American shows.
We’ll go ahead and pat ourselves on the back for predicting yesterday that a new Nov. 1 gig in University Park, Pa., and Springsteen’s recent New Yorker profile could mean that Bruce & the gang might soon be announcing another set of dates.
The previously announced leg of the Wrecking Ball World Tour for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band begins with two nights at Boston’s Fenway Park Aug. 14-15. Instead of wrapping up with three gigs in Springsteen’s home state of New Jersey at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium Sept. 19 and Sept. 21-22, the band now returns to the stage Oct. 19 in Ottawa, Ontario.
Including the University Park date, today’s official announcement from the Springsteen camp features a total of 16 stops in the U.S. and Canada. Here’s the routing for the new shows:
Oct. 19 – Ottawa, Ontario, Scotiabank Place
Oct. 21 – Hamilton, Ontario, Copps Coliseum
Oct. 23 – Charlottesville, Va., John Paul Jones Arena (JPJ Arena)
Oct. 25 – Hartford, Conn., XL Center
