Springsteen plots summer Jersey stadium gigs
EmptyNEW YORK -- Bruce Springsteen will return this summer to a familiar stomping ground, Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., for three shows in support of his latest album, "Magic."
The Boss and his E Street Band will perform July 27-28 and 31; tickets go on sale Dec. 15. The artist has sold out 66 prior shows at Giants Stadium, 51 of which were with the E Street Band.
The late July gigs will cap a 2008 world tour that begins Feb. 28 in Hartford, Conn. Springsteen is presently on the road in Europe through Dec. 19 in London.
In other news, the Mark Pellington-directed video for "Girls in Their Summer Clothes" will hit iTunes later this month, bundled by a "Winter Mix" of the track and a recent live performance.
Springsteen was yesterday (Dec. 6) nominated for four Grammys, including best rock album for "Magic" and best rock song for "Radio Nowhere."
