Springsteen into action for The Boss tickets

BRUCE Springsteen has proven he's still The Boss, with tickets for his upcoming tour flying out the door before they are even available to the general public

The 66-year-old rock legend recently announced a total of seven shows in Australia early next year, with the Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Summer '17 tour set to visit Brisbane, Sydney, Hanging Rock, Hunter Valley, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Springsteen was last on our shores in 2014 for a sold out run of shows.

Frontier Touring said the Summer of 2017 tour would see Springsteen and his legendary band undertake one of their biggest tours here to date.

Fans will be hoping The Boss brings his current form to our shores, after Springsteen played the longest gig of his career last Friday night in Philadelphia, with the performance lasting four hours, three minutes and 46 seconds.

Springsteen proved too much of a drawcard for Australian rock band Jet, who have announced they will reform to hit the road with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, appearing as special guests in Melbourne, Hanging Rock and the Hunter Valley.

In Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane there will be no special guests, leaving Springsteen and the E Street Band to perform the concerts in their entirety.

Pre-sale tickets for The Boss went on sale on Tuesday for Frontier members, with Ticketek's website struggling to keep up with demand.

Tickets sales will be opened up to the general public on Friday, September 23, from 2pm for Melbourne, 3pm for Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, and 4pm for Sydney.

The differing launch times are due to the expected rush for tickets, with hopes staggering the times will avoid the website becoming overloaded.

Tickets are available from Ticketek. Visit www.ticketek.com.au.
