“This is going to be one of the greatest Central Park concerts in history,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a press conference. He added, “This is something for the ages.”
While de Blasio didn’t announce the Homecoming Concert’s date, the New York Times reports that the mayor previously scheduled the show for August 21st, a date that is also one of the openings on the Springsteen on Broadway schedule. The Times also reports that Springsteen and Patti Smith will likely perform together at the Central Park gig.
