Boss adds two, Behind The Music returns!!!

Bruce Springsteen has announced two pre-tour rehearsal shows for Monday and Tuesday night (March 23rd and 24th) at the Asbury Park Convention Hall. reported that tickets go on sale today (Friday, March 20th) at 12 noon ET through Ticketmaster charge-by-phone only. Tickets are $100 with a two-ticket limit.

Last night (March 19th) Springsteen appeared on Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and performed an acoustic version of the title track to his new album Working On A Dream.

Seemingly confirming rumors that Max Weinberg would be missing portions of the E Street Band's European tour due to commitments to Conan O'Brien and The Tonight Show -- Weinberg's son, Jay Weinberg, was sitting in with the band on Monday and Tuesday's rehearsals at the Convention Hall, with his dad on hand. There has been no official word naming Jay Weinberg as his father's temporary replacement.
Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland will star in a new episode of Behind The Music, the popular VH1 series that is being revived by the network three years after it stopped producing new installments. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 10 new episodes have been ordered by the channel, with Weiland and rapper Lil Wayne the only subjects confirmed so far. VH1 executive VP of original programming Jeff Olde said about the show's return, "It felt like the time is right. There's all sorts of new artists on the scene who have emerged and have these great stories. And there's other artists that we always wanted to do the first time around."
Behind The Music aired regularly between 1997 and 2002, with only a few new episodes produced until 2006.
