Bruce Springsteen Coming to Arena on April 3

Next week is shaping up to be pretty "boss" for fans of Bruce Springsteen (awkward pun very much intended). The Grammy/Oscar/Golden Globe-winning rock 'n' roll legend will be performing during halftime of Super Bowl XLIII on Sunday, and tickets for his upcoming worldwide tour go on sale the following morning on Monday.

Said tour includes a stop at Arena in Glendale on April 3.

Springsteen will be crisscrossing the globe in support of his latest studio album Working on a Dream, which hits stores later this month. In case you've been living under a rock, he also performed at last week's inauguration in D.C. and also took home a Golden Globe earlier this month for his song "The Wrestler" from the movie of the same name.

If you're into old-school Springsteen like myself, no doubt you're aware that the cat staged a fairly memorable show at Veterans Memorial Coliseum back in July 1978 that was recorded for posterity and became the basis of the video for "Rosalita." Here's a clip:

Tickets are $70.20 to $100.20 and will be available on Monday starting at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster, the arena box office, or at finer scalping establishments everywhere.
