Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will be gracing London’s iconic venue for the festival’s 10th anniversary for two immense shows on Thursday 6th July and Saturday 8th July 2023. These London shows will form part of Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s much anticipated 2023 international tour (also featuring Edinburgh’s BT Murrayfield Stadium on Tuesday 30th May 2023 and Villa Park on Friday 16th June 2023), already selling more than 1.2 million tickets across the continent. This tour is the first time Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will perform live together since 2016’s hugely successful 14 month long ‘The River Tour’, which finished in Australia in 2017.
For these shows, Springsteen will be joined by The E Street Band’s members: Roy Bittan – piano, synthesiser; Nils Lofgren – guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa – guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent – bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt – guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg – drums; with Soozie Tyrell – violin, guitar, vocals; Jake Clemons – saxophone; and Charlie Giordano – keyboards.
Bruce Springsteen has released 20 studio albums in his career spanning over six decades and has become one of the world’s best-selling music artists. He’s been awarded 20 Grammys, two Golden Globes, an Academy Award, and a Special Tony Award, in addition to being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
His live tours have consistently been placed amongst the highest grossing of each of the last five decades. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s last tour, ‘The River Tour’, was 2016’s highest grossing tour worldwide. In May 2021, he became the eighth recipient of the Woody Guthrie Prize, a prize that honours an artist who speaks out for social justice and carries on the spirit of the folk singer.
He is an honorary Brit in the eyes of the UK, a true great welcomed by the people every time. Just last month, he famously made a surprise appearance at Glastonbury, joining Paul McCartney on stage for a rendition of his Born In The USA hit ‘Glory Days’ and The Beatles’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’.
Naturally, after the surprise performance, many were left wondering when Bruce Springsteen might be returning to the UK… American Express presents BST Hyde Park is answering those calls, and giving fans the first chance to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee live in the UK next year.
Full supporting lineup TBA!
