SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY - TERMINE
  
Bruce Springsteen kündigte am 9. August 2017 insgesamt 39 Solo-Akustik Shows am New Yorker Broadway an. Wegen der grossen Ticket Nachfrage wurde die Show am 30. August 2017, am 27. November 2017 sowie am 21. März 2018 verlängert. "Springsteen on Broadway" wird nun bis zum 15. Dezember 2018 im "Walter Kerr Theatre" laufen.
  
"Springsteen on Broadway" feiert am 3. Oktober 2017 Premiere. Bruce Springsteen beschreibt seine Broadway Pläne mit folgenden Worten: "Ich wollte eine Show auf die Beine stellen, die so persönlich und intim wie nur möglich ist. Die Show besteht nur aus mir, einer Gitarre, einem Klavier sowie Worten und Musik".
Springsteen on Broadway is a solo acoustic performance written and performed by Bruce Springsteen under the lights of Broadway. It is an intimate night with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and his stories. „My vision of these shows is to make them as personal and intimate as possible. I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theatre is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years. My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music. Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung, all of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal—to communicate something of value,“ says Springsteen.

Am 19. Juni 2018 ersetzte Bruce Springsteen den Song "Long Walk Home" durch "The Ghost of Tom Joad". Damit kritisierte er die harte Einwanderungspolitik der amerikanischen Regierung. 
 
Ausserdem veröffentlichte er auf seiner offiziellen Homepage folgendes Statement:

Bruce’s Remarks before “The Ghost Of Tom Joad”
In response to requests for the text of Bruce’s remarks before he performed “The Ghost of Tom Joad” last night, here is a rough transcript:
I never believed that people come to my shows, or rock shows to be told anything.
But I do believe that they come to be reminded of things. To be reminded of who they are, at their most joyous, at their deepest, when life feels full. It’s a good place to get in touch with your heart and your spirit, to be amongst the crowd. And to be reminded of who we are and who we can be collectively. Music does those things pretty well sometimes, particularly these days when some reminding of who we are and who we can be isn’t such a bad thing.
That weekend of the March for our Lives, we saw those young people in Washington, and citizens all around the world, remind us of what faith in America and real faith in American democracy looks and feels like. It was just encouraging to see all those people out on the street and all that righteous passion in the service of something good. And to see that passion was alive and well and still there at the center of the beating heart of our country.
It was a good day, and a necessary day because we are seeing things right now on our American borders that are so shockingly and disgracefully inhumane and un-American that it is simply enraging. And we have heard people in high position in the American government blaspheme in the name of God and country that it is a moral thing to assault the children amongst us. May God save our souls.
There’s the beautiful quote by Dr. King that says the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice. Now, there have been many, many days of recent when you could certainly have an argument over that. But I’ve lived long enough to see that in action and to put some faith in it. But I’ve also lived long enough to know that arc doesn’t bend on its own. It needs all of us leaning on it, nudging it in the right direction day after day. You gotta keep, keep leaning.
I think it’s important to believe in those words, and to carry yourself, and to act accordingly. It’s the only way that we keep faith and keep our sanity.
I’ve played this show 146 nights with basically the same setlist, but tonight calls for something different…
– Bruce Springsteen

SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY - TONY AWARD
 
Am Abend des 10. Juni 2018 wurden in der New Yorker “Radio City Music Hall” die “72. Tony Awards” verliehen. Der Preis wird seit 1947 alljährlich für herausragende Theater- und Musikaufführungen vergeben. Die Auszeichnung zählt zu den wichtigsten amerikanischen Preisen dieser Art und ist mit dem Oscar vergleichbar.
 
Der “Boss” wurde von Billy Joel mit folgenden Worten auf die Bühne gebeten:
I am honored to be back at the Tonys to present a Special Award to a fellow musician, an old friend, whose intimate show is Springsteen on Brodaway. It’s all about the man and his music, not to mention the heartfelt stories behind 40 years of incredible songs. This extraordinary event began as an eight-week limited run but by the time it wraps up in December will have played 246 performances. The Boss is working hard! So for bringing hundreds of thousands of new theatergoers to Broadway, it’s my pleasure to present the Special Tony Award to Bruce Springsteen.
Bruce Springsteen bedankte sich herzlich und gab während seiner Ansprache zu Protokoll, dass es eine grosse Ehre ist, Teil der Broadway-Community zu sein.
 
Thank you. This is deeply appreciated, thanks for making me feel so welcome on your block. Being a part of the Broadway community has been a great thrill and an honor for me — it’s been one of the most exciting things that I’ve ever experienced. I’ve got to thank Patti Scialfa, my beautiful wife and artistic partner, for her love and inspiration every night. I’ve got to thank Jon Landau, George Travis, Barbara Carr, and Jordan Roth for the great work of getting our show on stage. And last but not least, our wonderful audiences, who’ve made these shows so exciting and fulfilling. Evan, Jess, and Sam — Daddy loves you. You’ve been wonderful to me this season, thank you so much. God bless all.
 
Zum Ende der Show kam Bruce Springsteen noch einmal auf die Bühne, um “My Hometown” zu spielen.
