Bruce Springsteen has announced a string of UK shows for next year, and some observant fans have all noticed the same thing about the planned shows.

The Born In The USA rocker is due to kick off the European leg of his world tour with the E Street Band on 5 May 2024 in Cardiff, before hitting cities like Belfast, Sunderland, Dublin, Prague, Madrid and London in the following weeks.

And while The Boss may be booked and busy throughout May, June and July, some of his followers have spotted that there could be time to squeeze in a visit to next year’s Glastonbury festival, which takes place between 26 and 30 June.

According to Bruce’s schedule, he will perform in Nijmegen in The Netherlands on Thursday, 27 June, technically leaving him open from Friday-Sunday, before resuming the tour in Werchter in Belgium on Tuesday 2 July.

Festival-goers have already kicked off their annual detective work to figure out who might be appearing on this year’s line-up, and it looks like Bruce could be a contender.

“Lovely Glastonbury gap in that schedule,” one social media user wrote, while another suggested: “Expect him at Glastonbury then…”

The legendary musician is due to wrap up the 22-date tour on 25 July with a show at London’s Wembley Stadium.

He last headlined Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in 2009, while last year saw him making a historic surprise appearance alongside Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl as part of Paul McCartney’s set.

The US musician has been on a lengthy stint around North America for his 90-date world tour throughout 2023.

However, last month Bruce said he was “heartbroken” at having to postpone a series of gigs due to “symptoms of peptic ulcer disease”, before resuming the tour at a later date.

The Dancing In The Dark singer also performed in London this summer as part of British Summer Time festival, where he took a moment to poke fun at his previous battle with Hyde Park’s strict curfew.

Tickets for Bruce Springsteen’s UK dates go on sale this Friday, 3 November at 10am GMT here.
