Bruce Springsteen Posts Free Concert Download After Storm Forces Show Cancellation
Bruce Springsteen fans who bought tickets for his appearance at Madison Square Garden last night — only to see the show postponed thanks to a massive winter storm — can dial back their disappointment just a little bit after being gifted with a free full-concert download courtesy of the Boss.
As previously reported, Winter Storm Jonas dumped more than 20 inches of snow along parts of the Eastern United States, and the freezing deluge was enough to shut down New York City. Citing "a Tri-state travel ban and safety concerns from severe weather," the Springsteen camp told fans, "There is not an immediate date available for reschedule, but more information will be coming shortly."
In the meantime, Springsteen's offering a free download of a previous stop on the tour. "Out here on E Street, we’re missing our fans at the Garden tonight and wanted to send this along," explains the Facebook post linking to the files. Recorded during the Jan. 19 show in Chicago, the files will be available for the next 48 hours. Check out the post below.
With Jonas faded into the horizon, Springsteen's next Garden show, scheduled for Jan. 27, is expected to take place as plan. His current tour, a trek planned in honor of his landmark 1980 album The River, is booked through March 17.
