Bruce Springsteen to Perform at The Tony Awards
It’s official! Bruce Springsteen will perform this Sunday (June 10) at the American Theatre Wing’s 72nd Annual Tony Awards®, live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
In addition to his performance, Springsteen will receive a Special Tony Award for his ongoing engagement Springsteen on Broadway, a once-in-a-lifetime theatre going experience for the Broadway stage, allowing fans an intimate look into his life as a performer. No word on who is presenting Springsteen with the award, but a safe bet would be Billy Joel, who is a Tony Award winner for the musical, Movin’ Out, based on his own songbook. Who would have predicted this in 1975?
