Calling it one of the biggest concerts to ever be held in the venue, management at the North Charleston Coliseum announced Friday that veteran rocker Bruce Springsteen — “The Boss” himself — and the E Street Band are solid for Sat. Aug. 16.

[image-1]Springsteen, 58, has been writing music and making albums since the early ’70s. Released last fall, Magic (Columbia) is Springsteen’s latest studio recording and his first with the E Street Band in five years. Produced and mixed by Brendan O’Brien, the album features 11 new Springsteen songs and was recorded at Southern Tracks Recording Studio in Atlanta.

Tickets for reserved seats and general admission go on sale Fri. June 27, and are available for $30, $66, and $96 at the Coliseum ticket office, all Ticketmaster outlets (including select Publix grocery stores), by phone at (843) 554-6060, or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
