EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (AP) — Bruce Springsteen will be closing Giants Stadium.
The rocker told fans at the nearby Izod Center on Thursday that he and his "wrecking crew," the E Street Band, will be the final musical act before the stadium is demolished after the 2009 football season.
Three shows are scheduled on Sept. 30, Oct. 2 and Oct. 3. Tickets will go on sale June 1.
Over the course of nearly three hours, Bruce and the boys performed a 20-song show and six encores Thursday. They'll return to the Izod Center on Saturday.
The New Jersey native has sold-out 44 concerts at the center and 16 at Giants Stadium, making him the area's top-selling artist.
