The Bruce Springsteen ticket-pricing saga rumbles on, and now The Boss’s, erm, boss – manager John Landau
If you weren’t trying to buy tickets last week for Bruce Springsteen’s next round of US concerts, you may be unaware of the controversy around the on-sale.
Several reports are claiming that Sony Music has emerged as the winner in the race to buy Bruce Springsteen’s recorded music and publishing catalogue.
Sony Music Group and its publishing arm are tipped as the likeliest buyer, with a combined price prediction of between $330m and $415m.
Apple Music is pushing all the boats out for the release of Bruce Springsteen’s 20th studio album ‘Letter to You’.
There’ll be a week of radio shows on its new Apple Music Hits station, plus an album listening party and live Q&A, and a documentary on the Apple TV+ service, which drops on Friday alongside the album.
It’s a big push, and a reminder that Apple Music is now very keen on the classic/heritage audience. Which, we guess, is a category that Gorillaz might also fall into now, although if we’re dividing these things up by station, they’re still an Apple Music 1 artist rather than just Apple Music Hits.
