Springsteen Extends Broadway Show

From Rolling Stone:

Once again, Bruce Springsteen has extended his wildly popular Broadway one-man-show, this time with 81 additional performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Springsteen on Broadway will now wrap with a final run of shows from July 10th through December 15th, 2018.

The rock legend's acclaimed residency officially launched October 12th. Springsteen initially performed through November 26th before extending the production another 10 weeks, for a total of 236 shows at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

In his reviewRolling Stone's Andy Greene described the production as a "live version" of Springsteen's 2016 memoir, Born to Run. "The performance is hard to categorize," he wrote. "It's not a concert; not a typical one-man-show; certainly not a Broadway musical. But it is one of the most compelling and profound shows by a rock musician in recent memory."

Bruce incorporates a few different Takamine models during the performance including the EF381SC 12 string and her 6 string sister the EF341SC from the Legacy Series. But the primary model Bruce uses on (and off) Broadway is the maple, sunburst P6N-BSB from Tak’s Pro Series.
