The Washington Nationals and Live Nation made a major announcement on Friday that Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band's 2012 "Wrecking Ball" World Tour will make a stop at Nationals Park on Sept. 14. Tickets for this momentous concert event will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 27, at tickets.com.
"We are excited to welcome Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band to Nationals Park for what will no doubt be an unforgettable performance," Nationals chief operating officer Andrew Feffer said.
Springsteen & the E Street Band have already earned accolades for their stellar performances on the current tour. Rolling Stone called the show "epic," The New York Times said "explosive" and the Boston Globe wrote of the concert's "energy that bordered on superhuman." Springsteen's "Wrecking Ball" (Columbia) was released last month and debuted at No. 1 in the U.S. and 14 other countries.
Springsteen & the E Street Band is just the latest major act to play at Nationals Park over the past few seasons. The home of the Nationals has also hosted sellout shows featuring Elton John and Billy Joel in 2009, as well as the Dave Matthews Band with the Zac Brown Band in '10. One of the most iconic acts alive today, Springsteen & the E Street Band are sure to deliver a memorable performance this fall.
"There's nothing more American than baseball and rock 'n roll in the nation's capital," Feffer said. "Bringing such an iconic show to Nationals Park is just another example of our commitment to creating the ultimate fan experience."
