Welcome back, Boss: Bruce Springsteen playing MN show next year


The Boss is coming to Minnesota.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will play the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on Feb. 29, 2016.

Tickets go on sale Dec. 11 at 10 a.m., according to an email release.

Reserved seats run at $152.50, $107.50 and $57.50; general admission tickets hit $152.50. They'll be available at Xcel Energy Center box office and Ticketmaster Ticket Centers.

Springsteen and his group haven't toured since 2014's High Hopes tour – but they didn't stop in Minnesota then. Last time they were here on a headlining tour was in 2012, for a two-date stint at the Xcel.

This new North American run is called The River Tour, and starts Jan. 16 in Pittsburgh and ends nine weeks later in Los Angeles. It's in support of Friday's release of "The Ties That Bind: The River Collection" – a 52-track, four-CD collection of archived and unreleased material surrounding the 1980 album "The River."
