Springsteen Returns To Asbury Park

The New York Post reported that Springsteen, 74, and the E Street Band will be headlining the Sea.Hear.Now Festival at North Beach on Sunday, September 15.

Earlier in the weekend, the festival will feature Noah Kahan, the Black Crowes, 311, the Revivalists, the Hives, Grace Potter, Sierra Ferrell, Peaches, Guster, Ziggy Alberts, the Robert Randolph Band, Joe P, Passafire and Sonic Blume.

Tickets for the Sea.Hear.Now Festival are set to go on sale tomorrow at 10am EST.

Springsteen Searching For Meaning In His Life

In an interview last year, Springsteen opened up about trying to find meaning in his life.

“I think in your 20s, a lot of things work for you,” Springsteen told CBS News. “Your 30s is where you start to become an adult. Suddenly I looked around and said, ‘Where is everything? Where is my home? Where is my partner? Where are the sons or daughters that I thought I might have someday?'”

“I realized none of these things are there,” he added. “So I said, ‘OK, the first thing I’ve gotta do as soon as I get home is remind myself of who I am and where I came from.'”

Springsteen is a true living legend, and there’s nobody else quite like him in the music world today. His show in Asbury Park at the end of the summer is sure to be legendary, so be sure to check it out if you can!
