The 2018 Broadway production of the musical Gettin' the Band Back Together is giving away a pair of tickets to see Springsteen on Broadway, just by going on the show's website. The tickets, valued at $400, are for the Saturday, December 30, performance of Springsteen's concert. This giveaway ends November 2, and prizes will be awarded by November 10.

Directed by Tony winner John Rando, Gettin' the Band Back Together has music and lyrics by Mark Allen and a book by Ken Davenport and the Grundleshotz with additional material by Sarah Saltzberg. It will open at the Belasco Theatre on August 13, 2018, with previews beginning July 19. Tickets go on sale Thursday, November 2.

The production will have sets by Derek McLane, lighting by Ken Billington, and sound by John Shivers. Casting will be announced in the coming months.

Gettin' the Band Back Together is described as follows: "Mitch Papadopolous always dreamed about being the next Bon Jovi, but he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while he thought he had everything – the high-paying job, the high-rise apartment – until his 40th birthday when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his Mom in Sayreville, New Jersey.

"And when his high school arch nemesis (with a 20-year-old grudge and a tangerine spray tan) threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can… by winning the Battle of the Bands.

"So he dusts off his guitar, gathers his old gang (the math teacher who isn't good at math, the Irish cop who dreams about being on Broadway, the dermatologist who can't get a date, and a 16-year-old Jewish rapper who makes Vanilla Ice look cool), and sets out to win the battle… and maybe even win back the high school sweetheart he left behind… proving it's never too late to give your dreams one last shot."

An earlier, developmental staging of Gettin' the Band Back Together opened at New Jersey's George Street Playhouse in 2013.
