Super Bowl gig sparks super sales for Springsteen

February 3, 2009 - Andy Gray
Bruce Springsteen enjoyed a huge Super Bowl bump.

Tickets for his Mellon Arena show in May sold out within minutes of going on sale Monday. Tickets didn’t sell nearly that fast for the Cleveland and Pittsburgh dates on the “Magic” tour.

I didn’t try to get tickets Monday, but I talked to a friend who got shut out for both Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. He was able to get tickets for the Hershey, Pa., show, which went on sale at noon instead of 10 a.m.

For those who missed out, Bruce fans usually can count on a few hundred tickets being released the morning of the concert to undercut the scalpers. And during the press conference Springsteen and the E Street Band did last week at the Super Bowl, Bruce promised he’d be coming to Cleveland and Detroit after the band’s shows in Europe in June and July.
