Gossip about Springsteen’s involvement has been circulating through the entertainment world for weeks, and seemed uncertain once the singer announced the return of his show “Springsteen on Broadway,” which reopened Saturday and will run through Sept. 4. But while his show is running on some Saturdays, an Aug. 21 performance is conspicuously absent from the posted schedule.

“He is beloved in New York City in an extraordinary way,” de Blasio said of Springsteen, “even though he happens to come from Jersey — no one’s perfect.” (…)

any chance to do it with his well known backin’ band instead of an acoustic set?

At the Central Park show, Springsteen is expected to perform a duet with Patti Smith, according to a person briefed on the plans. The mayor did not mention Smith’s involvement in his announcement, and a representative of the singer declined to comment.

I suppose it's not hard to guess what song, but it would be nice to be wrong on this and we got a surprise and more than a single song.


"I've done my best to live the right way"

I predict at least two songs if he sings with Patti Smith... Open with LOHAD into a duet of  Because The Night.

He's been singing American Skin on Broadway now.  I wonder if he'll play that if he goes longer.  The last time he played 41 Shots at Shea.  All of the NYPD in attendance walked out including those that were providing a security escort for him from the venue to his destination.

Most of all... I hope he plays with the E Street Band.


The SPL Rocks!
