Rock star Bruce Springsteen is set to return to Broadway this summer for additional performances of his hit one-man show.

"Springsteen on Broadway" is set to reopen later this month and run into September. 

"I loved doing 'Springsteen on Broadway' and I'm thrilled to have been asked to reprise the show as part of the reopening of Broadway," the "Born to Run" singer said in a statement.


Springsteen's show, during which he performs songs and tells stories about his life in New Jersey, debuted in 2017 and was extended multiple times before closing in 2018. A filmed version of the show also debuted on Netflix.

Audience members will be required to prove they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend the show's new dates. Fans under the age of 16 will not be required to be vaccinated, although they must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult and provide a negative coronavirus test.

Broadway is reopening this summer after being shuttered during the coronavirus pandemic.
