NEW YORK -- The Boss just can't quit Broadway.

Bruce Springsteen will return to Broadway this summer for a limited run of his one-man show 'œSpringsteen on Broadway.' Performances at the St. James Theatre begin June 26 with an end date set - at least for now - for Sept. 4.

 

'œI loved doing '˜Springsteen on Broadway' and I'm thrilled to have been asked to reprise the show as part of the reopening of Broadway,' the rocker said in a statement.

'œSpringsteen on Broadway' debuted in 2017 and was extended three times, finally closing in late 2018. Columbia Records put out a two-disc soundtrack of 'œSpringsteen on Broadway' and a filmed version of the show is on Netflix.

In the show, Springsteen performs 15 songs - including 'œMy Hometown,' 'œThunder Road,' and 'œBorn in the USA' - and tells stories about growing up in New Jersey. Some of the stories will be familiar to readers of his autobiography, and he even reads from it. His wife, Patti Scialfa, accompanies him for 'œBrilliant Disguise.'

Audience members will be required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the theater.
