Seven years after his last ever performance at the same venue in June 2016, Bruce Springsteen and his E-Street Band will return to the Olympic Stadium for the next Open Air on 23 July 2023.
More than 40 years after his debut at the Olympic Park, when he not only thrilled the fans in a sold-out Olympic Hall in April 1981 but also the critics. At the time, the Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote of a "provocative elegy" about this "uncompromising artist" who "describes and conjures up the dark sides of life with a raw, explosive voice." A basic tenor, a basic noise in Springsteen's work, which has lost none of its magic over the decades.
That the Boss is still open to new things at the age of 73 was shown by his new devotion to soul when he covered "Do I Love You (I Do Indeed)" by Frank Wilson as well as the Commodores classic "Nightshift", among others, in 2022.
Whether rock or soul, the Boss is guaranteed to heat up the fans in the stadium with his E-Street band.
