Bruce Springsteen to Play American Airlines Center on April 5

The last time Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were in Dallas, it was for a one-off performance at Reunion Tower during the NCAA March Madness festivities back in 2014. As usual, The Boss put on a killer show, although the novelty of having it at Reunion was dampened some by the chilly, rainy weather. That shouldn't be a concern this time around, though, as Springsteen is set to return to Dallas two years almost to the day for a visit to American Airlines Center on April 5.

Springsteen and co. are on the road celebrating the 35th anniversary of their classic double-LP, The River, which is being commemorated with a massive four-CD, 52-song box set dubbed The Tie That Binds and an accompanying U.S. tour. Plans for the tour were first announced last week, but the dates only came out this morning. Dallas, it turns up, will be the final stop on the 23-date tour. There will be a a more than two-week break between it and the prior tour stop, but chances are he and the band should be in fine form by the time they hit town.

Tickets to see Springsteen and the E Street Band go on sale this Saturday, January 30, at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com.
