After months of rumors, Bruce Springsteen has confirmed that he’ll make his Broadway debut this fall, performing the solo show Springsteen on Broadway for eight weeks at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

Springsteen is planning five shows a week at the 960-seat venue, which he noted was one of the smallest theaters he’s played in the past 40 years. Previews of the show begin Oct. 3, with an official opening scheduled for Oct. 12. The run continues through Nov. 26.

“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible,” Springsteen said. “I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music. Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.”

Tickets go on sale Aug. 30 at 10AM ET through Ticketmaster Verified Fan. Fans will have to register in advance for the fan-first ticketing technology that aims to combat bots. Registration begins today and runs through Aug. 27. Verified users will be notified on Aug. 29. (Visit Springsteen’s website for additional details on how to register and purchase tickets.)

The New York Post first reported news of the Broadway run in June, adding that “some insiders believe Springsteen’s Broadway gig may be a curtain raiser to another project — turning his bestselling memoir, Born to Run, into a musical” in the vein of Jersey Boys and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, though there hasn’t been any confirmation of that.

Springsteen’s illustrious career has included the release of 18 studio albums and the recent memoir. He has been honored with 20 Grammys, an Oscar and Kennedy Center Honors, and has been named MusiCares Person of the Year. He was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The New Jersey rocker also recently announced that he’ll open up his vaults to release 25 archival concert recordings in the coming months.
