RUMOR: Bruce Springsteen To Headline Central Park Concert This Summer

There has been a rumor floating around for some time now that New York City was going to host a concert in Central Park this summer to celebrate the re-opening of the city. With Bruce Springsteen re-opening Broadway, he might be slated to re-open the entire city with this concert that is rumored to take place on August 21. To help fuel the rumor that Springsteen will be in attendance, he mysteriously has two scheduled Broadway date for that Saturday, August 21. He typically runs the show from Tuesday-Saturday the weeks he is playing.

Just today the website, Page Six, has sources telling them that Bruce Springsteen is a locked deal. The article states that he is expected to headline the show and also "perform a song with Patti Smith." Wonder what that song could be...(cough...Because The Night...cough). Paul Simon is also expected to be headlining the show alongside Bruce if the show does indeed commence. If the rumored show does take place, viewers should be able to watch it live on CNN according to the report. It is unclear if E Street will be involved, but I think it is safe to assume that it will just be Bruce Springsteen performing acoustically and without his band. Although, you never know...I guess we will soon find out since August 21 is under two months away.
