Here are 11 things you need to know for the Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Philadelphia concert.

It’s been six years since we have had a show in Philadelphia from Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. They will play one night only at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia on Thursday, March 16 as part of their 2023 Tour.

MGK has you covered with everything you need to know before you head to the venue on Thursday.

102.9 WMGK will celebrate Bruce Week to prepare you for the Philadelphia concert.

The first three days (Monday, March 13- Wednesday, March 15) will include blocks of Springsteen’s best, interviews with members of the band, and multiple chances to win our last free tickets to get into the sold out show!
