Bruce Springsteen Concerts in South Africa

Born in the USA rocker is coming to make magic in Msanzi with three concerts

Fans of the The Boss finally get the chance to go dancing in the dark with legendary rock icon Bruce Springsteen and the epic E Street Band. The world-famous act will be making its first ever South African concert appearance with three (yes, a third has been added) shows at Cape Town’s Bellville Velodrome on Sunday, 26, Tuesday, 28,  and Wednesday, 29 January 2014 and one concert in Johannesburg at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, 1 February 2014. As mentioned, as tickets for the two original concerts in Cape Town sold out in no time at all, the third show (Sunday, 26  January) was added and sales for the additional date open on Tuesday, 5 November.

With a career spanning more than four decades and 20 Grammy awards under his belt, Springsteen is best known for his every-man rock ‘n roll and heartland lyrics that touch on themes of working class life in America, and more specifically, in his hometown of New Jersey. The singer-songwriter and his band are also known for their marathon-like live concerts, which tend to run full steam for an uninterrupted two and a half hours.  

Springsteen, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, broke into the music scene with the highly successful 1975 album called “Born to Run”, which features, along with the famous title track, hits ‘Thunder Road’ and ‘Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out.  The 1984 release, “Born in the USA”, is one of the best selling albums of all time and features songs ‘My Hometown’ and ‘Glory Days’. The E Street Band is also a musical institution in and of itself and is made up of accomplished instrumentalists. Together with Springsteen they know how to put on one hell of a show.

South African Boss lovers will certainly get to hear their favourite tunes, like ‘Born in the USA’, ‘Born to Run’ and ‘Dancing in the Dark’, belted out by the man himself.

Tickets for Bruce Springsteen Concerts in South Africa

Tickets for Bruce Springsteen’s concerts in South Africa will be available via Bigconcerts.co.za and Computicket from 9am on Wednesday, 30 October for Johannesburg audiences and Friday, 1 November for Cape Town fans.
