Bruce Springsteen will join Grammy-winning rock band Portugal. the Man next week in his hometown of Asbury Park, New Jersey for the reopening of concert venue Asbury Lanes.  

On Monday, June 18th, the event celebrates the multimillion-dollar renovation of Asbury's beloved shuttered bowling alley, newly outfitted as a music venue. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Monmouth County. It's unclear how many songs Springsteen will perform at the event.

An online lottery via the Asbury Lanes website is available only to Asbury Park residents as part of the commitment to honor the local community. The lottery will accept entries until 8 a.m. Eastern Time on June 7th. Asbury Park Now will also host a giveaway for a pair of tickets as well as a night at the newly-established boutique hotel, The Asbury. 

Asbury Lanes opened to the public over Memorial Day Weekend, bringing decidedly more alternative bands to town such as the Allah-Las, Thursday and Tennis. The venue, part of the indie-leaning Bowery Presents network, will also host Kurt Vile and the Violators, Lupe Fiasco and the Black Lips for upcoming shows. 

The reopening of Asbury Lanes is one piece of much broader changes coming to the rustic dive town. In 2010, master developer iStar invested $300 million to renovate properties on and around the boardwalk, according to the New York Times

ASBURY PARK

SPRINGSTEEN WILL BE ‘SPECIAL GUEST’ AT OPENING PARTY FOR ASBURY LANES

TWO HUNDRED FREE TICKETS RESERVED FOR ASBURY RESIDENTS FOR JUNE 18 EVENT

By Asbury Park Sun
 
 
Bruce Springsteen is the announced ‘special guest’ for a party celebrating the reopening of the Asbury Lanes, according to a media advisory issued by waterfront redeveloper iStar, which owns the venue.
 

Headlining the June 18 event will be Portugal the Man. Rock photographer Danny Clinch’s Tangiers Blues Band will open. The event is in support of the Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County.

Two hundred free tickets are reserved for Asbury Park residents, who will be selected by lottery. One hundred lottery winners will be eligible for two tickets each. Complete information on how to submit entry into the lottery can be found at asburylanes.com, according to the media advisory.

Asbury Lanes has a capacity of 740. A spokesperson for iStar declined to give information about other invitees to this invitation-only event.

The event is being booked in partnership with The Bowery Presents, the advisory stated.

Asbury Lanes opened in 1962. It became a music venue over a decade ago. Istar just finished a multi-million dollar complete rehabilitation of the building, and bands have begun to perform at the venue.

Asbury Lanes is managed by the same team that runs iStar’s The Asbury hotel, which is located adjacent to Asbury Lanes. The two buildings are now connected by a passageway.
