On February 28, at 9 P.M. ET, CBS TV will air an hour-long Bruce Springsteen concert special that will coincide with the launch of his 2003 tour with the E Street Band. The special is not a live broadcast; instead, it captures footage from a 2002 Barcelona show that has never been aired in the US. According to Billboard, Springsteen and company will perform several songs from his Grammy-nominated album, The Rising, including "Lonesome Day" and "You're Missing," as well as some classics.
Springsteen is up for five Grammys this year, including album of the year, best rock album, song of the year, best male rock performance, and best rock song. The Grammys air February 23, also on CBS.
The Boss will play a handful of US shows to warm up for his forthcoming tour of Australia and Europe. Check out the US dates below.
