Organizers: Bruce Springsteen to play 1st Mariner Arena Nov. 20
Rock legend Bruce Springsteen will perform at 1st Mariner Arena Nov. 20, organizers announced today.
This is apparently Springsteen's first Baltimore show since opening for Chicago at the Baltimore Civic Center in June 1973.
Officials at 1st Mariner Arena had heard nothing about the show, which comes near the end of Springsteen's 31-date tour.
Tickets for the show will go on sale Sept. 25, according to a press release sent out from Shore Fire Media, Springsteen's publicity company. The same day, tickets will go on sale for Springsteen's Nov. 2 gig at the Verizon Center in Washington.
1st Mariner, which seats between 13,000 and 15,000 depending on the staging and seating, would be one of the smaller venues on Springsteen's current itenerary.
