Bruce Springsteen is preparing for the continuation of his United States tour. Now that he is circling back, fans of The Boss in several U.S. locations that were left off of the first leg will get the opportunity to see him. Additional 18 gigs have been added to the tour, beginning on August 9 at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Starting in two weeks, tickets will be released in a staggered manner, and for most stops, fans will need to use Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program to gain access.
