There is NO opening act on this tour. After all, how do you open for the Boss? That's too much pressure.
What Time Will Bruce Springsteen Perform in Philadelphia at the Ballpark?
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are on a new leg of the tour as they hit stadiums across the US, after spending much of the summer on the road overseas.
We don't know EXACTLY what time Bruce will perform. But it's likely they'll hit the stage around 7:45.
Earlier this week he hit the stage between 7:45 and 7:55 at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
By the way, if you're hanging out at the ballpark concession stands or pregaming at Xfinity Live! before the show, don't push it too close.
It's probably best to be in your seat no later than 7:30 pm. You don't wanna miss ANY of this show.
What Is the Setlist for Bruce Springsteen's Philadelphia Concerts in August 2023?
Normally we are able to dig into some clues on Twitter and the website setlist.fm to gauge what the artist's setlist will be before a concert, but with Bruce Springsteen that's difficult. The band is known for changing this up each and every night.
But we pieced together a list of songs that we expect The Boss to perform. Click here to check it out.
Though, every night on this tour has been different so far. So we kind of expect that to continue. It is, however, safe to say that Bruce and the band will perform both the massive hit songs and their more obscure fan favorites from their expansive discography.

Who knows? We can tell you that the Boss and the band have been performing for HOURS every night on the tour.
The shows have been averaging about 27 songs (with as many as 7 songs during an encore).
So it's about a 3-hour concert from start to finish each and every night, and since it's Bruce, you never know what surprises will be in store in terms of the setlist.
"I was clear he has the endurance of a marathoner and an indisputable dedication to the music, band, and audience," one reviewer wrote after a recent show in St. Paul, MN.
