The Boss has added 40 new shows to his 'Springsteen on Broadway' residency in New York at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which will extend his engagement into 2018.

The 20-Grammy winner unveiled the news via an update posted Aug. 30 at his official Facebook page and other social media. The new dates were added by popular demand after tickets for the original run, scheduled between Oct. 3 – Nov. 26, sold out instantly after going on sale Wednesday morning.

The new round of shows will take place from December through early February with the “Born in the USA” hitmaker performing five shows a week Tues. - Sat. to the end of the engagement. New performances include: Dec. 5-9, Dec. 12-16, Dec. 19-23, Dec. 23-27, Dec. 30-31, as well as Feb. 1-3.

Registration for the newly added dates will begin Wed., Aug. 30 – Sat., Sept. 3 at 10:00 p.m. ET.  Tickets go on sale to the public starting Thurs., Sept. 7 at 10:00 a.m. ET. For more information, click here.
