QUICK TAKES

Springsteen will play Super Bowl

September 30, 2008|Randy Lewis

Bruce Springsteen will add his name to the roster of classic-rock stars who have performed during halftime at the Super Bowl with an appearance Feb. 1 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

Springsteen and the E Street Band follow the Rolling Stones, U2, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Paul McCartney taking the stage at the Super Bowl, which last year drew 148 million viewers.

The Springsteen canon is deep and wide, so anything's possible for a Super Bowl set, but it's hard to imagine him not including such gridiron-ready numbers as "Tougher Than the Rest," "Cover Me," "Glory Days" and the slam-dunk choice, "Born to Run."
