After weeks of rumours, it’s now official: Bruce Springsteen will host a meet & greet event in London to promote his book Born to Run. The venue, a bookstore in Central London, will be revealed only to ticket holders. Tickets go on sale today at 8pm at events.waterstones.com/springsteen.
No more appearances have been announced in Europe, so this might be his only stop in the continent.
The news came yesterday out of the blue when Steve Van Zandt announced on Twitter his return to the stages with The Disciples of Soul. They’ll be performing at the BluesFest in London, at O2’s Indigo, on October 29th. Tickets go on sale Friday Oct.14th at 9am.
Steve will be back as Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul, though with a reformed band full of new musicians (up to 15, according to a recent tweet). If he’s happy with the results the plan is to do a full tour in the Summer of 2017.
Bruce Springsteen will make a series of in-store appearances to promote his autobiography, available September 27th.
