Bruce Springsteen has found a new audience on Broadway.

Bruce Springsteen to perform on 2018 Tony Awards

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.
