Thirteen musical events with free admission in a dozen venues to celebrate the artist. Exhibitions and book presentations are also on the calendar
Ahead of the Bruce Springsteen concert in Ferrara on May 18 (at Parco Urbano), the city is paying homage to the great author with a calendar – entitled “Waiting for Bruce” – of 13 musical events with free admission, in two weekends, dedicated precisely to the American artist and hosted in a dozen different locations. These appointments will also be joined (and will be detailed shortly) by exhibitions and book presentations, always dedicated to the Boss. Various activities are involved that will offer live shows on the notes of Bruce Springsteen between rock groups, tribute bands, cover bands. The posters that will be distributed and disseminated also include a QR code to access the @bruceferrara Telegram channel for real-time information on roads, traffic and organizational and logistical updates related to the concert on May 18th. In view of the appointment on May 18, the new website www.brucespringsteenferrara.it has also been available for a few days “Waiting for Bruce” will be a way to celebrate the arrival of Bruce Springsteen – says mayor Alan Fabbri – and symbolically open the doors to music, opening the event to the city and involving locals, groups, attracting citizens and tourists. We are operating in the wake of what we had announced: the concert on May 18th will be an extraordinary occasion for the whole territory, an extraordinary occasion from which we want to reap all the best fruits, for the benefit of the city, promotion and valorisation. Ferrara demonstrates and will increasingly demonstrate that it is also a great capital of music”.
