Sorry, Chris Christie. The Boss is coming back to Philly.
Bruce Springsteen announced his new tour dates for The Wrecking Ball World Tour in the US and Canada on Friday on his website, and on the list is a Philadelphia performance at Citizens Bank Park on September 2. You’ll recall that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (who attended his 127th Springsteen concert at the Wells Fargo Center late last month) had made an appeal for the New Jersey-born rocker to play at the $2.4 billion Revel Casino & Resort in Atlantic City for Labor Day Weekend (Labor Day itself is September 3 this year).
Springsteen’s new tour dates also include a stop at Wrigley Field on September 7, Nationals Park in D.C. on September 14, and a three-day stop at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on September 19, 21 and 22.
Tickets for the show at Citizens Bank Park go on sale next Saturday, April 21 at comcasttix.com.
