The Boss will take a break between shows of his 2016 ‘The River’ tour to join The New Yorker Festival Friday, October 7th, at the Town Hall on 123 West 43rd Street.

After a four hour and four minutes long concert in Philadelphia, which broke their record for their longest show in the US yet, Springsteen and his band will be meeting fans to celebrate the release of his new autobiography, starting with ‘The New Yorker Festival.

‘The New Yorker Festival’ is an annually held event by The New Yorker magazine gathering the “who’s-who of the arts, politics and everything in between“. The first ‘TNY Festival’ was held in 1999 and has since earned its reputation for the events it holds in venues in and around New York City.

The award winning singer and songwriter won’t be performing at the event, but will instead join the magazines editor and Pulitzer Prize winner, David Remnick, in conversation.

This years events include, among others, a sit down with comedian Louis C.K, Jeremy Lin, point guard for the Brooklyn Nets, and ‘James Bond’ actor Daniel Craig.

In the music category this year ‘Conversation with Live Performance’ guests will include Andrew Bird, Jason Isbell and Father John Misty.

Bruce will be making several such appearances this fall to celebrate the release of his autobiography ‘Born To Run‘. 

The autobiography was named after Springsteen’s first hit, originally written for The Ramones; he started the memoire in 2009 and it will be released September 27th, but you can pre-order your copy here.
