Due to the overwhelming demand for tickets, Springsteen on Broadway has extended its run through June 30th, 2018.

Fans who previously registered and were verified but placed on Standby and did not receive a code, and fans who received a code but were unsuccessful in purchasing tickets will be contacted by Ticketmaster with further information about the added shows.”
