We're not saying Bruce Springsteen doesn't love us Seattleites, but it's certainly a neglectful relationship. The Boss hasn't played a concert in our fair city since March 2008. We get it Bruce, (aside from the transplants) us Northwesterners aren't as fanatical as your East Coast worshipers, but an eight year absence just seems mean. At long last, the rock drought will come to an end next month when Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band finally return to KeyArena on Thursday, March 24.
The concert is part of The River Tour, where the group plays the 1980 classic record The River in its entirety. While The River's 20 songs take up a hefty chunk of time, considering Springsteen's marathon sets regularly run over three hours, there will still be plenty of room to explore much more of his extensive catalogue.
Tickets for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at KeyArena go on sale this Friday, February 12 at 10am on ticketmaster.com. Tickets run $65–$150.
