The music component of the Tony Awards just skyrocketed with the inclusion of Bruce Springsteen.
The veteran rocker, who has been breaking records on Broadway with his one-man show, will make a rare TV appearance during the Sunday ceremony with a live performance.
Springsteen is slated to receive a special Tony Award for his “Springsteen on Broadway,” which announced its final extension through December.
The 72nd annual Tony Awards were already a music-heavy affair, with Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles tapped to host and a presenting lineup that includes Billy Joel, Patti LuPone, Katharine McPhee, Matthew Morrison, Leslie Odom Jr. and Bernadette Peters. The show airs live from New York’s Radio City Music Hall from 8-10 p.m. on CBS.
