Springsteen book tour tickets on sale Wednesday




Bruce Springsteen is heading home later this month to start a book tour.

Springsteen announced a nine-stop book tour Monday that will begin at a bookstore in his childhood hometown of Freehold, N.J., on Sept. 27.

Springsteen’s memoir, “Born to Run,” will be released the same day. The book tour comes after Springsteen and the E Street Band wrap up a 75-show concert tour Wednesday in Foxborough, Mass. 

Fans at the ticketed events will get a signed copy of the book. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday for the Portland meet-and-greet, noon to 2 p.m. Oct. 4 at Powell’s Books, 1005 W. Burnside St., for $32.50, at http://www.powells.com/event.

Springsteen’s book tour will also stop in New York; Philadelphia; Seattle; Los Angeles; San Francisco; and Cambridge, Mass.
