It seems as though New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio might've jumped the gun when describing Bruce Springsteen as a headliner for next month's “Central Park Homecoming Concert” to be held on the Park's Great Lawn. Last week, the Mayor joked, “(Springsteen) is beloved in New York City, in an extraordinary way, even though he happens to come from (New) Jersey. No one’s perfect.”
The TBA Central Park show will feature the semi-retired Paul Simon, Jennifer Hudson, and others artists still-to-be announced.
The ultra-reliable Backstreets.com quoted a source with inside knowledge stating, “Bruce agreed to make an appearance in a guest capacity, but he will not be a headliner for the show.”
