If there’s one thing that we know for certain, tickets for Bruce Springsteen‘s two night stand at Madison Square Garden (November 7-8) go on sale today (Sep 18) at 12 noon. But what is less certain is where Bruce will be tonight, rumors have it that he’ll be doing a secret taping of Spectacle… Elvis Costello With somewhere in New York (possibly at the Apollo). On Wednesday, Roger Friedman‘s ShowBiz411 blog reported on some details of a recent Spectacle taping with U2 in Toronto and confirmed that Bruce Springsteen was among one of the upcoming guests slated to have a seat on Costello’s couch.

In other Boss news, Live Daily ran a story on Wednesday hinting that this may be the last E-Street band tour for a “year or two” as Bruce and his bandmates are planning on taking an extended break after their last gig on November 22 in Buffalo, NY. Of course, it could all be a PR ploy to drum up ticket sales for the remaining shows on this tour, some of which are still not sold out, but here’s what a coy Little Steven had to say about the whole thing:

“We are going to take a break,” E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt said Wednesday during a conference call with reporters. “I don’t know how long, one year, year-and-a-half, two years off. This is a good time to see us. We may not be as pretty, [but] we seem to be getting better in funny ways.

“You never know. This could be be the last tour. We do every show like it’s our last show anyway.” [LiveDaily.com]
