28th January 2014

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band -
New Album 'High Hopes' Debuts At #1
Final Ticket Release for Both NZ Shows

On the back of the news that Bruce Springsteen's new album 'High Hopes' has debuted at #1 in New Zealand, comes confirmation from Frontier Touring that a limited number of tickets in all price categories have just been released for both Bruce Springsteen concerts at Mt Smart Stadium this March. These tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.

Bruce’s #1 chart debut secures him his fifth New Zealand #1 album in the first Official New Zealand Music Chart for 2014. 'High Hopes' has also reached #1 is his US homeland, Australia, the UK, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Finland and Sweden!

Bruce and The E Street Band’s March dates will be their first shows in New Zealand for over a decade.

In 2013 Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band played a string of shows across Australia. 2014 will see their first return to New Zealand in over a decade and if reports of last year's shows are anything to go by this is one tour that should absolutely not be missed!

‘Sometimes a show takes the breath out of your lungs and leaves you speechless. In awe. Unsure how to articulate what you just witnessed. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band is one such show.’ – Sydney Morning Herald

‘It is going to be tough for anyone to beat Bruce Springsteen for the tour of the year.’ – The Daily Telegraph

‘This is the legendary E Street Band and nobody can keep up with them. Nobody can come close. Mark my words - they're the best there is... Bruce Springsteen is the greatest performer I've ever seen and if you pass up a chance to see him live; your life will be poorer for it.’ – Brisbane Times

‘After a ten-year hiatus Bruce Springsteen has returned to Australia to deliver the latest instalment in what really is the greatest rock and roll show on earth... An important artist of his or any generation, Springsteen remains possibly the most vital front man of the modern era. Long may he run.’ – The Australian

Special guest Jimmy Barnes will be sure to get the crowd rocking while Australian songstress Mahalia Barnes has just been added to the bill at the concert opener for both shows.
