Happy birthday, Bruce Springsteen!
The Boss is 73. He was born Sept. 23, 1949, at the former Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch. Springsteen is the first born of Adele and Douglas Springsteen of Freehold. They would have two more children, Virginia and Pamela.
What’s coming up for Springsteen in the next year? A world tour that starts Feb. 1, 2023, in Tampa. The show comes to the Prudential Center in Newark on April 14. More shows are expected to be announced.

Springsteen was a very busy 72-year-old. He sold his master recordings and music publishing rights to Sony for more than $500 million; stopped by Freehold to announce the creation of the new My Hometown: The Bruce Springsteen Story Center; and he helped Paul McCartney celebrate his birthday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford and London, too.
