He will play Switzerland and Norway!
Bruce Springsteen has added more dates to his River Tour.
He will now play Trondheim on July 26, Oslo on July 28 and Zurich on July 31.
Last week, Springsteen canceled a show scheduled for Sunday in North Carolina as a protest against the state’s controversial House Bill 2. Known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, the Bill requires individuals to use gender-specific bathrooms, as defined by their birth certificates, and is seen by many as discriminatory against transgender people.
Springsteen pulled the band’s April 10 gig in Greensboro writing on his website, “Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry – which is happening as I write – is one of them.”
The River Tour will reach the UK on May 25 with a show at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium.
The tour coincides with the recent release of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, a comprehensive look at the era of the 1980 album, The River.
The dates are:
Wednesday May 25: Etihad Stadium, Manchester
Wednesday June 1: Hampden Park, Glasgow
Friday, June 3: Ricoh Arena, Coventry
Sunday, June 5: Wembley Stadium, London
