For all of Ticketmaster's efforts, resale sites already are flooded with "Springsteen on Broadway" tickets, with some reaching $10,000 apiece. They immediately sold out through November 26th. Bruce will be played by himself at all performances.
Just in, the highly anticipated Springsteen on Broadway has been extended through February 3.

Tickets had gone on sale Monday morning via the company's Verified Fan service, in which potential ticket-buyers had preregistered for a chance to receive a code, which would allow them to buy two tickets. "So ...you're letting people who didn't register the first time cut in line?"
Ticketmaster had previously implemented a new system called the Verified Fan program created to help circumvent bots, scalpers and resellers scooping up tickets immediately, and level the playing field for dedicated fans. Performances of Springsteen on Broadway are set to begin at the Walter Kerr Theatre on October 3 in advance of an October 12 opening (Springsteen will perform five shows per week Tuesday-Saturday).
On Wednesday, a day when many fans crossed their fingers in hopes of scoring tickets to Bruce Springsteen's fall residency in a Broadway theater, the singer announced on his website that he is extending his NY run by 10 weeks.
As BWW reported earlier this month, Ticketmaster had issued a warning to those wishing to purchase tickets to the event.
