Rock legend Bruce Springsteen will be descending on Manchester in May to play a single date at The Etihad Stadium. The New Jersey born singer and musician has been making his way round the US on his 2016 River Tour over the past month and has just added a number of European dates, including this one in Manchester, which will be one of only three dates in England this year.
Springsteen’s newest album was his eleventh to hit the number one spot in the US and saw him place third in the chart of most #1 albums in his home country. Joined by the E Street band, which is also joining Bruce on all of the tour dates this year, High Hopes is a collection of cover songs and “reimagined” versions of his own tracks from previous LPs.
Prior to his newest release, Springsteen has brought us some of the most well known rock music anthems of all time including Born In The USA, not to mention having won a total of 19 Grammy Awards, which by anyone’s standards is very impressive. As well as being a talented musician and singer, Bruce Springsteen is an activist for LGBT human rights, for which he has been featured in the news recently, opposing a new law in North Carolina.
Springsteen will be jetting over to the UK with the E Street Band to play at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on Wednesday the 25th May.
