BRUCE Springsteen has been staying in Stratford-upon-Avon on and off for the past two weeks, the Herald can reveal.
The 63-year-old global superstar has been keeping a low profile, staying at The Welcombe Hotel off Warwick Road with his wife Patti Scialfa and daughter Jessica Springsteen.
Currently on the massive Wrecking Ball Tour with his famous E Street band, ‘The Boss’ has been using Stratford as a base for this leg of the tour.
Two weeks ago he was seen at The Bridge restaurant in Bidford, just a couple of days after his Milan concert on 3rd June.
More recently he has been spotted using the Welcombe gym.
Greg Fehler, General Manager at the hotel, said: “He was here, on and off for the past two weeks, but he kept quite a low profile. He was a lovely guy, and his wife and daughter were equally as nice.”
Back in Stratford this week, after wowing 71,000 people at Wembley on Saturday, he flew up to Glasgow on Tuesday to play Hampden Park.
The American rock icon is back in the area today, playing his third and final UK concert on this leg of the tour, at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.
Greg said: “He was very friendly, just an all-around nice guy, and being ‘The Boss’, he even had a picture with the boss of the hotel.”
