Bruce Springsteen has announced details of four huge UK shows in 2023, marking his first tour in the country in six years.

The Boss & The E Street Band will kick off their return at Edinburgh’s BT Murrayfield Stadium on May 30, before following it with a show at Birmingham’s Villa Park stadium on June 16.

Springsteen and his band have also been announced as the first headliners for BST Hyde Park – with two London dates on Thursday July 6 and Saturday July 8.

Tickets go on sale 9am on Thursday 21 July 2022. You can purchase them for the Edinburgh date available here, Birmingham here and BST Hyde Park here.

A full European tour was also announced earlier this year, with full dates here.

“After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year,” Springsteen said in a statement. “And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there, next year — and beyond.”

While the dates mark Springsteen’s first UK tour in over half a decade, he most recently appeared in the UK last month as a special guest during Paul McCartney’s Glastonbury headline set.

The pair joined forces on The Beatles ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’, before covering Springsteen’s ‘Glory Days’.

Last December, Springsteen became the latest artist to sell off the masters and publishing rights to his entire back catalogue in a hugely lucrative deal.

The Boss struck a $500 million (£377 million) agreement with Sony Music, giving the label total control over his musical life’s work, which encompasses 20 studio albums, more than 300 songs, 7 EPs and 23 live records.
