Yet another reason to hate the Yankees!

Bruce Springsteen Getting The Cold Shoulder From New York Yankees?
While Bruce Springsteen can sell out 10 nights at Giants Stadium, he is having trouble getting a “meeting across the river” in New York City. A report in the New York Daily News says Springsteen wants to play with his E Street Band at Yankee Stadium in September, but that the team turned him down due to fears of damaging the field so close to the playoffs. It was noted, however, that the Boston Red Sox don’t have the same fears, since they’ve OK’d two shows at their Fenway Park, even though they’re within striking distance of the Yankees.
The story goes on to say that the crosstown New York Mets–who almost certainly aren’t headed for the postseason–may make their Shea Stadium home available for the band.
A Springsteen representative had no knowledge of any New York City dates being added to Sprinsgteen’s itinerary.
While New York’s baseball teams decide what to do, another stadium show has been announced. Springsteen and company will play the first-ever concert at the new Rentschler Field in Hartford, Connecticut, on September 16. The stadium is the home of the University Of Connecticut Huskies football team. Ticket information for the show hasn’t been made public yet.
Springsteen plays the first of two shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, on Friday (August 1).
