The echoes of the grandiose concert in Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Bandlast night at Datchforum in Assago packed to the rafters with eleven thousand fans, enthusiastic about a memorable setlist to say the least, comes the official confirmation of the return of the 'Boss' to the Sansiro Stadium, 25 June, the only concert in Italy for 2008.
Rumours of a summer comeback for Springsteen had already circulated in recent days, on the occasion of the tour's European debut in Madrid. Now the confirmation and in addition the announcement that tickets for the Sansiro concert will go on sale, starting Wednesday 5 December. Details on prices and distribution in sales points will be announced in the coming days..

In the meantime, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are continuing their 2007 European tour, which will see them performing in northern Europe over the next few days. However, it is impossible not to emphasise the unique bond with the Italian public, pervaded by an enthusiasm for the 'Boss' that has no equal in the world and that has produced a small miracle on this occasion too: for the first time in 25 years, for the Milan concert Bruce Springsteen has surprisingly included in the setlist Incident on 57th Street and played live for the first time in our country. E-Street Shuffle, dating back to his second album. Notes from collectors and die-hard fans, but certainly a key element in understanding the veneration of an audience that is already dreaming of Bruce with the E Street Band in Sansiro five years after the last time. And again they will see the historic members of the E-Street Band on stage with Bruce Springsteen (voice and guitar): Roy Bittan, keyboards; Clarence Clemons, saxophone and percussion; Nils Lofgren, guitars; Gary Tallent, bass; Steve Van Zandt, guitar; Max Weinberg, drums; Soozie Tyrrell violin and backing vocals, Patti Scialfaabsent from some European dates in 2007 but always present in the introduction of Girls in their Summer Clothesfrom the latest album Magicand with the hope of also seeing Danny Federicicurrently replaced by Charlie Giordano.
