I am so excited, I can hardly type.. there is no shit here, all of the below is factual..

I run trivia nights for a living. Earlier this evening I got a phone call from a semi regular attendee who is also a huge Bruce fan. He informed me that last night he was at some political function and met Kevin Jacobsen. He didn't know who KJ was, and for those in Aus, he was the promoter last time Bruce played here in 2003. KJ told him that he was a promoter and informed my friend that Springsteen in Australia is LOCKED IN!!!! Sydney is locked in for March 13, with Melbourne and Brisbane gigs as well. He didn't tell me the dates for the other two. KJ also mentioned that they were looking to get Bruce into a music festival at Hanging Rock (in Victoria).. nothing was mentioned at this stage about NZ..

I have a contact well in with the SCG Trust so will be calling tomorrow to see if I can sniff out if he is playing the SCG or the SFS.. will keep all informed..

If this is correct, then it will be 10 years to the month since he last played here...

WOOHOO!!!!!!

OK, one more for THIS guy!!!!!

Oh this is absolutely sensational! Thanks for the info man and it confirms another definite report that was given last week. The music festival at hanging rock sounds a bit out there but whatever, I can actually drive my car there rather than boarding a plane for once! It's now 10 past midnight, I'm buzzing and it's gonna be a while before my brain shuts down for the night, such great fuckin news :D

Giants Stadium, the pit, August 30th 2003 .... thanks Bruce, it was better than sex as were the ones in 2005, 2008, 2009, 2012 and best of all Australia 2013 & Australia/NZ 2014  - YES YES !!

Now now Mr Wicks, it's been 10 years since us poor southern hemispherians (is there such a word?) have had the pleasure of the great mans company so this, together with what was heard in St Paul, definitely warrants thread 246 thanks ;)

Was he convicted of something?

She sits on the porch of her daddy's house                           Now sometimes tomorrow, comes soaked in treasure and
But all her pretty dreams are torn                                             blood
She stares off alone into the night                                          Here we stood the drought, now we'll stand the flood
With the eyes of one who hates for just being born
                There's a new world coming, I can see the light                                                                                                         I'm a jack of all trades, we'll be alright

It is true
Kevin Jacobsen is behind the tour which may surprise many given what happened in 2003
May not be his company running the tour but he is the the key player behind the scenes

I've heard the exact same thing (same dates etc). My mum was having dinner with a friend (a Bruce fanatic) who is best friends with Jacobsen. She got a text from Jacobsen himself with these details, however the only thing that worries me was that in the text it said that tickets would be released Nov 1.. As we know that ship has passed.. We'll just have to wait and see

I am so excited, I can hardly type.. there is no shit here, all of the below is factual..

I have a contact well in with the SCG Trust so will be calling tomorrow to see if I can sniff out if he is playing the SCG or the SFS.. will keep all informed..

If this is correct, then it will be 10 years to the month since he last played here...

WOOHOO!!!!!!


You'd better be right...! :)

Tell me about it... but I am feeling pretty confident, based on who it came from, etc etc...

Just would seem unlikely that he would have Rio booked in for Sept next year and there would be nothing outside of Europe and the US between now and then..

OK, one more for THIS guy!!!!!
