According to Billboard Magazine:

when Springsteen and his E Street Band return the market for a Labor Day weekend stadium double of the Wrecking Ball tour Sept. 2 and 3 at Citizens Bank Park, they will set a remarkable milestone: becoming the first act to perform in every major live music venue in the city.

According to Ike Richman, Vice President of communications of Comcast Spectacor, when Springsteen plays Citizen Bank Park, he’ll have completed a cycle of playing the major live venues here that have, over the years, included the Spectrum, Wells Fargo Center, Veterans Stadium and others.
