With two sold-out Wells Fargo Center shows in March behind them, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band will return to South Philadelphia to play Citizens Bank Park on September 2. It's part of a stadium sized second leg of the American tour for Wrecking Ball, which will also include three Meadowlands shows at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium later that month.

The Philadelphia date falls on Sunday night of  Labor Day weekend, so so much for New Jersey Gov. Christie's hopes to have the Boss play at the Revel casino resort in Atlantic City that weekend. The Phillies are out of town until Sept. 5 and Springsteen is off until Sept. 7, so there's room for another date to be added should ticket sales be brisk. Tickets are $98 and $68 and go on sale next Saturday April 21 at 10 a.m. at comcasttix.com.

A video of Springsteen and the E Streeters with guest guitarist Tom Morello doing Wrecking Ball's "Death To My Hometown" compiled from tour rehearsals an shows in Austin, Texas and New York is below. More info on the tour here.

My review of the March 28 Wells Fargo show is here and the Inquirer Springsteen Pinterest page is here. That's a picture I took with my phone when Springsteen sat down and had a beer in the row in front of me during that first Wells Fargo show.

The same day tickets go on sale for the ballpark - April 21 - Springsteen enthusiasts Light In The Darkness are putting on a Philadelphia Roadshow at McFadden's at Citizens Bank Park. More info on that here.
