      The good news for fans of Bruce Springsteen is that he’s about to embark on an extended stint on Broadway.

      The iconic singer will settle in New York’s Walter Kerr Theatre for a run of shows from October 3 to November 26. Famed for his epic live sets, Springsteen will do five nights per week.

      Don't expect full-band performances though. Springsteen on Broadway is being billed as "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."

      The bad news is, well, have you ever tried to buy tickets for a show on Broadway? Say goodbye to a month’s worth of rent, as well as your first born, left kidney, and right testicle/tit. 

      To get your hands on tickets, which go on sale on at 10 a.m. on August 30, you need to be a Ticketmaster verified fan.

      The big appeal here, of course, is that Springsteen normally only plays major arenas. The Walter Kerr Theatre will give fans the chance to see him in a relatively intimate venue.

      The singer has explained his move to Broadway with this statement: “I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as 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.

      "It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.”
