Last night, the E Street Band and The Sopranos had their own reunion. The occasion was a screening of “Lilyhammer,” the Netflix original series starring Steve van Zandt–Little Steven, to you–at the Crosby Street Hotel. Both gangs came out to celebrate van Zandt including Mr. Bruce Springsteen, as well as Tony Sirico (“Paulie Walnuts”) and Steve Schirippa (“Bobby Bacala”) from the heralded and much missed HBO show. Tony Bennett. Chloe Sevigny and Harvey Weinstein were also in the house.
And what was everyone talking about besides “Lilyhammer”? Why the Springsteen show just announced for the Apollo Theatre on March 9th. It’s the kickoff for the “Wrecking Ball” tour. Springsteen now joins Sting, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon and Stevie Wonder, and just a few others who’ve used the Apollo to test launch their new shows via Sirius XM Radio. Hopefully Bruce will include a little nod to soul history at his Apollo show, which should even be more fun. SiriusXM’s Scott Greenstein knows how to put these things together–he just ushered VanHalen through their nifty comeback show at Cafe Wha? in Greenwich Village.
