"I loved doing Springsteen on Broadway and I'm thrilled to have been asked to reprise the show as part of the reopening of Broadway," 71-year-old Springsteen said.
Springsteen first brought his one-man show to the New York stage in 2017, with the run being extended three times as the show became one of the most popular on Broadway.
Columbia Records put out a two-disc soundtrack of Springsteen on Broadway and a filmed version of the show, which closed in 2018, is on Netflix.
In the show, Springsteen performs 15 songs - including My Hometown, Thunder Road, Born in the USA, and a duet with his wife Patti Scialfa on Brilliant Disguise - as well as telling stories about growing up in New Jersey, some of which will be familiar to readers of his autobiography.
Proceeds from Opening Night of Springsteen on Broadway at the St. James Theatre will be donated to a group of local New York and New Jersey charities including the Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Food Bank for New York City, Fulfill (Monmouth & Ocean Counties Foodbank), Long Island Cares, NJ Pandemic Relief Fund and The Actor's Fund.
Audience members will be required to provide proof of full Covid-19 vaccination in order to enter the theatre.
