Bruce Springsteen fans will have many more chances to make it real.

The Boss will extend the run of his sold-out Broadway show at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York through the end of June.

"Springsteen On Broadway," the mostly one man show that also features Mrs. Springsteen, Patti Scialfa, opened in October to almost unanimous rave reviews.

The autobiographical and theatrical presentation that brings Springsteen's 2016 memoir "Born To Run" to musical life was scheduled to close on Feb. 3. Instead, the production will take a break before re-opening Feb. 28 and run until June 30.

Here's the ticket situation: When they go on sale Dec. 19, tickets will only be available to would-be purchasers who have already gone through the Ticketmaster Verified Fan registration process, and were previously shut out after being placed on Standby.

Fans who received a code and were unable to purchase tickets and those who were put on Standby but never got a code will each be eligible to potentially buy tickets. The nightly Lucky Seat lottery that fans can enter in hopes of buying a bargain $75 tickets — as opposed to top face value of $850 or the $2,000 and up they're going for on StubHub — will continue.
