Just got word that Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band will indeed make it to Dallas -- on April 13. Where? No idea; not yet. I'd think the American Airlines Center, but Dallas and Houston, which follows the next night, are the only two cities on the just-released itinerary with venues marked "TBA." Which means that we also don't know when tickets go on sale -- only that, uh, they'll have to eventually. Me, I'm beggin' for a Cotton Bowl show -- never thought that September '85 show would end. Or the Bronco Bowl. He did promise. --Robert Wilonsky
