He’s back!

New Jersey icon Bruce Springsteen is set to play his first concert in his home state in seven years, it was announced Tuesday.

The show—which is being billed as a “homecoming”—is scheduled for April 14, 2023 at the Prudential Center in Newark. Tickets go on sale on July 29.

Springsteen and the E Street Band are heading out on an international tour through the United States and Europe in 2023, their first since the 2016-2017 River Tour, which did have stops in New Jersey. The group’s most recent album was 2020’s “Letter To You.”

The U.S. leg of the tour kicks off in Tampa, Florida on February 1 and ends with the Prudential Center performance, with stops along the way in cities including New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Albany. European stops throughout next spring and summer include Barcelona (April 28) and Paris (May 13).
