Bruce Springsteen Readies Soul Album Announcement: Return to the Apollo After 10 Years?


Bruce Springsteen is readying the 10am announcement of his soul covers album, “Only the Strong Survive.” The news will come on his social media sites and on on Sirius XM Radio channel.

So what’s next? I’m hearing that Bruce and the band may be heading back to Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater. It’s been a little more than a decade since Bruce and the E Street Band put on a revival at the Apollo in March 2012. It seems like the right time and place to showcase “Only the Strong Survive” since many of the songs got their start in the legendary venue.

And the Apollo? They’re booked most of the week of November 11th, when the album is supposed to drop. But they’re free on the Sunday and Monday preceding….Just sayin’…
