Bruce Springsteen – Video Recap Of 31-Date European Tour – Second Leg Of US Tour Starts This Week

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s triumphant return to Europe was met with over a million and a half tickets sold and widespread praise as the best shows of the band’s career. With a finale to more than 70,000 fans in Monza, Italy, the 14-country tour included multi-night stands in each of Barcelona, Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, Gothenburg, Oslo, London and Copenhagen. In London’s Hyde Park, Springsteen and The E Street Band performed to over 130,000 across two nights — backed by The E Street Horns and The E Street Choir — with The Daily Telegraph declaring that “Springsteen is at the peak of his powers” in a five-star review and USA Today urging audiences to “run, don’t walk, to see Springsteen” when he returns to North America this week. That momentum will continue with 31 more tour dates before the end of the year, beginning with two nights at Chicago’s Wrigley Field on 9th and 11th August and finishing at San Francisco’s Chase Center on 10th and 12th December. Multiple-night runs are also scheduled for Philadelphia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Toronto and Los Angeles.
