Happy Birthday Bruce Springsteen
Happy Birthday to Bruce Springsteen, who turns 64 today (September 23rd) Springsteen and Roger Waters have been announced as the headline performers on November 6th for the seventh annual Stand Up For Heroes benefit. Since 2008, the annual Stand Up For Heroes benefit serves the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which provides aid to those who have sustained the “hidden injuries of war,” and has helped over “one million veterans, service members, and their families since it began in 2008.” The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart will return to host the event, which will also star Jerry Seinfeld.
On February 5th, “The Boss” and the E Street Band will kick off their first dates of 2014 with a 13-date tour of Down Under, kicking off with the first of three performances at Australia’s Perth Arena.
In March 2012, Springsteen scored his 10th career Number One album with Wrecking Ball, which sold 196,000 copies in its first week on sale. The album’s chart placing tied Springsteen with “The King” himself, Elvis Presley, for the third-most Number One albums in the history of the Billboard 200.
