Springsteen Adds 17 Solo U.S. Concerts

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Bruce Springsteen has added an extensive third leg to his North American tour with 17 newly booked fall concerts. Kicking off October 6 in Rochester, NY, this leg of the solo, acoustic tour will stretch through November 21, spanning eleven states. Springsteen will perform in arenas modified to theater format.

"We're coming back to some of our favorite cities to make sure the fans get a chance to see how this tour has evolved over the course of the last 50 shows," said long time manager Jon Landau. "Bruce just keeps stretching the boundaries of his performance night after night, and the result has been some of the very best concerts of his entire career."

With ever changing set lists and a seemingly inexhaustible repertoire, the performances have functioned as an acoustic retrospective of Springsteen's entire career. He has performed 115 different songs on the tour. Many unexpected rarities have appeared on the tour. Springsteen brought out "Open All Night" and "Used Cars" from 'Nebraska,' each played for the first time in nine years. He played "Nothing Man" from 'The Rising,' performed only three times before 2005. From 'Tracks,' he performed "Sad Eyes" and "Iceman," neither of which had ever seen a stage before. 'Tunnel of Love's' "Valentine's Day" saw its live premiere in 2005 as well. As an encore, Springsteen has often dramatically reinterpreted Suicide's 1980 song "Dream Baby Dream" for the pump organ.

On September 6, Columbia Music Video will release an expanded and completely re-edited DVD version of Bruce Springsteen's historic solo 'VH1 Storytellers' concert. The solo performance is nearly two hours long and features a total of eight complete Springsteen songs including "Devils + Dust" and "Jesus Was an Only Son" from the album 'Devils & Dust.' The DVD also contains Springsteen's detailed comments, introductions and anecdotes on the songs' origins, as well as a previously unseen question and answer session between the musician and his fans.
