After the two dates at Milan's San Siro Stadium, where over 110,000 people welcomed BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & THE E STREET BAND for two incredible live shows, the American artist and the historic band are ready to arrive in Rome on Saturday 16 July for their first concert at the Circo Massimo, as part of the Postepay Sound Rock in Roma.
On the first two Italian dates of the "The River Tour" Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band did not disappoint, offering Italian audiences two shows special in their essentialitymore than 30 tracks per date for more than three and a half hours of concert. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band also played 14 tracks from 'The River". Milan is thus one of the European tour dates where the American artist has played more songs from that album (beaten only by last night's Paris date).

At 5.15 p.m., in fact, the very Italian Treves Blues Bandled by Fabio Treves, 'Il Puma di Lambrate', who carries the Italian blues flag high in the world.
