Bruce Springsteen’s upcoming solo show, “Springsteen on Broadway,” has been extended. Tickets for the originally announced run of the show, from Oct. 3 through Nov. 26, went on sale earlier today and have been quickly snapped up.
The home page of the official website for the show now says: “Performances for ‘Springsteen on Broadway’ begin Tuesday, October 3, with an official opening on Thursday, October 12. Springsteen will perform five shows a week through February 3rd” at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City.
“Additional tickets for ‘Springsteen on Broadway’ will go on sale September 7 at 10 a.m. ET exclusively through Ticketmaster Verified Fan. This unique fan-first technology levels the playing field to combat bots and get real tickets into the hands of fans who intend to go to the event.”
The site also notes: “Ticketmaster Verified Fan registration is open now and will close September 3 at 10 p.m. ET. Verified fans will be notified September 6 for the September 7 sale. If you previously registered for Springsteen on Broadway powered by Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan, your registration will be automatically carried over for the new run. Registering again or more than once does not increase your chances to receive an offer code. Click HERE to register and learn more.”
The site also says, in more detail:
“We appreciate your participation in the #VerifiedFan process and you DO NOT need to register again if you were unsuccessful in completing a ticket purchase for any reason including:
- Due to demand — you were placed on Standby and did not receive an offer code.
- You were on Standby — received an offer code but could not find tickets.
- You received a code and did not complete a ticket purchase.
NOTE: Codes will NOT carry over.
#VerifiedFan registration is open now to all fans who did not register for the initial onsale and for those who successfully completed a ticket purchase.”
Despite Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan procedure, minutes after the initial run of Springsteen shows went on sale on Ticketmaster today — at prices ranging from $75 to $850 — tickets were available on StubHub ranging from more than $1,000 to $6,000 and higher.
