The Boss: Book Signings in U.S., Live Shows Down Under

Bruce Springsteen has booked a number of shows in Australia and New Zealand for 2017 and also has book signing events in the U.S. during the remainder of this year.

The book signings are for his publication “Born To Run,” which is set to release Sept. 27. At the events the books will be pre-signed and all copies will include an 18-song album called Chapter and Verse.

Here is a trailer for the book’s audio companion:

There are nine signing events scheduled in the U.S. starting with Sept. 27 in his hometown of Freehold, N.J. From there, the tour mostly sticks to the coasts, ending two weeks later in Cambridge, Mass.

Details about how to attend the events are not available, but both the Boss’s Facebook page and the venues refer to tickets, so there will likely be a process for securing yourself a space.
