    Some rumoured dates for the US floating around. All of them starting out West in early march and heading heard thru the first week of May. Apparently LA Sports arena a month before Chella.

    Austin lines up with SXSW. Will he be the sit down guest?

    Also rumours of Moncton in late August. Big outdoor show like the U2/Arcade Fire show in July. Other US shows in summer/fall. Aastralia swing rumoured, firs tin 9 years.

    Hopefully he doesn't shaft Portland/Seattle/vancouver area like he did in 2009.

    I saw him/them in Omaha in '08 on the Magic tour, they did an awesome full band version of "Reason to Believe", but that was all. Bruce mentioned it was their first time in Omaha since 1978.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    UPDATED 6:45 a.m.: Bruce Springsteen announced details Thursday morning of his 17th studio album, "Wrecking Ball," to be released March 6. The album will feature 11 new songs (13 in a special edition) produced by Ron Aniello.

    No extra tour dates were announced -- Springsteen with the E Street Band has concerts scheduled in Europe through July -- but a source within the Chicago Cubs told the Sun-Times late Wednesday that the Boss is tentatively scheduled to perform at Wrigley Field in September.

    A Springsteen concert at Wrigley is already posted on some ticket scalper sites with a date of Sept. 8, though no actual tickets are on offer.

    No one has said anything yet. Clarence has a nephew who is a good sax player, but the speculation among the faithful is that he might just go with a horn section instead of trying to replace Clarence.

    These stories never get old especially with what happened last time the Boss toured. Last Friday, system was crashing because the geniuses at Ticketmaster decided to put Springsteen, Pulp, Coldplay, Death Cab, Florence and other tickets on sale all on the same day...

    This couldn't have happened to a more high-profile artist, at a worse time, or in a worse place. And now, New Jersey Congressman Bill Pascrell is promising action and the reintroduction of the BOSS Act, which calls for secondary market oversight and restrictions on companies like Ticketmaster.

    The meltdown started Friday, when fans attempting to purchase tickets to Bruce Springsteen's upcoming 'Wrecking Ball' tour on Ticketmaster were frozen out - except, marked-up tickets were readily available on StubHub and other markup sites (and maybe even Ticketmaster's own secondary marketplace, TicketsNow.)

    Which means that the actual, market-driven prices of these tickets were way higher than list, and in the absence of dynamic pricing, scalpers seized the opportunity. So here we go again: Ticketmaster quickly blamed an 'assault' from scalpers, who pounced on early supply and played the spread. "Early indications suggest that much of this traffic came from highly suspicious sources, implying that scalpers were using sophisticated computer programs to assault our systems and secure tickets with the sole intention of selling them in the resale market," Ticketmaster stated.

    The resembles a situation in 2009, when fans trying to buy Springsteen tickets on ticketmaster.com were automatically shuttled to TicketsNow, despite the presence of regularly-priced seats. That led to a blowup involving thousands of pissed off fans, irate statements from Springsteen, and proposals for new (ie, BOSS) legislation. In both scenarios, there was a huge disparity between the price fans thought they should pay, and what they would actually play.

    The perception-reality gap is perfect for a politician like Pascrell. "Whether today's problems are due to honest mistakes or dishonest market manipulation, regular folks who wanted a little entertainment were not able to get what they wanted at a fair price," Pascrell stated while announcing the re-introduction of the anti-scalping, ticketbuyer-friendly BOSS Act.

    But despite the horrible rap that scalpers get, they're merely arbitragers seeking to capitalize on market inefficiencies. After all, situations like this don't happen when tickets are overpriced. But maybe that's a deceptively simple suggestion, especially given the prickly world of concert ticket sales, complex artist-fan relations, and endless backroom demands. Because as rational as something like dynamic, demand-driven pricing sounds, this isn't the airline industry.

    From a MeFi thread on this very issue happening right now...

    "No. Prices aren't artificially low. There's high demand and artificial scarcity at any commodity live entertainment event. And then speculators looking to flip cause even higher demand that isn't really there.

    Announce a second show for any sellout show and watch scalper prices tumble as they try to unload tickets before they go from "losing a bit of money" to "completely fucked"."
    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.

    Just like Paul McCartney played the Apollo Theater in 2010, the Boss will play his first-ever gig @ the famed Harlem venue on March 9th. Tickets are only available to Sirius customers and rich celebrities!

    It is those things, and obviously much, much more. A Springsteen show is like being in an enormous church revival tent, only with better guitars. The Boss has 20 years on me, but the shit he does on stage would at the very least leave me with a permanent limp.

    He has very fucked up knees because he's been sliding around on them for the last forty years.

    HandBanana, I very highly recommend checking out the HBO Special Live in New York City from 2000. It's a very good representation of what his shows are like and really captures the feeling well.

    I really wonder what it's going to be like without Clarence.
