Springsteen in Saugerties on Sunday?
But it’s Jessica Springsteen, the Boss’ daughter, not Bruce himself.
You see, hitmaker John Fogerty is performing in concert at Saugerties’ HITS-On-the-Hudson at 5pm Sunday, and “HITS” stands for “Horse Shows In The Sun.” And the $50 general admission ticket to see Fogerty also allows the ticketholder free admission to the Pfizer $1 Million Grand Prix Horse Show, which begins at 1:30pm at the same venue.
Jessica Springsteen is apparently a longtime equestrian enthusiast who will be riding and competing in the horse show.
The Fogerty concert is being co-promoted by the Bardavon Opera House in Poughkeepsie. And in an email to The Poughkeepsie Journal this week, Bardavon executive director Chris Silva wrote, “Bruce Springsteen has appeared onstage with John Fogerty on a number of occasions in recent years. So your $50 general admission festival seating ticket will not only get you entry to both the equestrian events and the John Fogerty concert, but it MAY even include a glimpse or a tune or two from The Boss himself. No promises, but anything is possible.”
Hmmmmm… Do we smell a jam session? Or just a desperate marketing ploy?
Gates open for the horse show at 12noon. Gates open for the concert at 4:15pm. General admission tickets are $50 with proceeds to benefit the Family of Woodstock.
