Despite canceling last night’s show in Kansas City, Missouri, due to the death of his assistant road manager/cousin, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will take the stage Thursday night at New York’s Madison Square Garden as part of the historic duo of concerts celebrating the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary.
On October 29th, Springsteen will share the spotlight with Tom Morello and John Fogerty. The bill also inclues Stevie Wonder with B.B King and John Legend, Simon & Garfunkel, and Crosby, Stills and Nash. The next day’s lineup boasts U2, Aretha Franklin (with Lenny Kravitz and Annie Lennox) and Metallica joined by Ozzy Osbourne. Plus, Jeff Beck will be stepping in for Eric Clapton, who had to cancel his set due to minor surgery.
Rolling Stone will have complete coverage from both big concerts, so check back for live reports and photos of all the shows’ highlights, plus videos and behind-the-scenes interviews.
