Forty years after the Born In The U.S.A. tour kicked off in Summer 1984, Springsteen and The E Street Band started the European leg of their 2024 run this past weekend; with an opening show that was praised for “reminding us…no one does it better” (The Times) and as “a spectacle of unadulterated joy and human connectedness” (The Telegraph). The 2024 European tour follows a triumphant run across the continent last year, which sold 1.6 million tickets and was praised as among the best of the band’s career. The 40th anniversary release for Born In The U.S.A. also follows Sony Music’s career-spanning Best Of Bruce Springsteen collection – which is out now in physical formats as an 18-track set across 2 LPs or 1 CD – and digitally as an expanded 31-song package.
