Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are showing New Jersey just how much love they have for their home state. They're now giving Garden State fans not one, but three concert dates. Two additional shows have been added at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford
The news comes as guitarist and right-hand man Stevie Van Zandt took a break from the tour due to COVID. Springsteen's wife Patti Scialfa and long-time violinist Soozie Tyrell also came down with the virus. On Stevie's Twitter page, he said it's a mild case and he and Tyrell were back on the tour last night which stopped in Houston.
Next Tuesday, Feb. 21, Marc Cohn and Shawn Colvin will join fellow Grammy winner and folk pop singer Sara Jarosz for an intimate concert at Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $31.
