Two classics are back together for one more time. The Boss and LA's venerable Sports Arena, which is slated to be torn down soon to make way for a brand new soccer stadium. The concerts will take place on March 15, 17, 19. Springsteen has played 36 concerts in the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena or the neighboring coliseum and affectionally called the former “the dump that jumps.” Now, the Boss is set to bring down the house once more, this time in more ways than one: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s shows at the sports arena are the last to rock the 57 year-old venue before it closes its doors for good. Developers plan to tear down the Sports Arena in order to replace it with a more in demand facility — a soccer-specific stadium that would house an MLS team. On May 18, 2015, Los Angeles Football Club announced its intentions to build a privately funded 22,000-seat soccer-specific stadium at the site for $250 million. The stadium would be completed by 2018. The MLS stadium is also part of the Los Angeles 2024 bid to host the Olympic swimming events. The Springsteen concerts support the release of the box set The Ties That Bind: The River Collection (“Springsteen’s best archival release yet,” according to Rolling Stone), a comprehensive fleshing-out of the pivotal 1980 album The River. Audiences will hear an in-sequence, complete performance of the original album, which includes Springsteen’s first top-10 single, “Hungry Heart,” plus other Springsteen favorites.
