Bruce is Boss at the Venables

A tribute to Bruce Springsteen will have the audience dancing in dark in the Venables Theatre on Saturday May 25.

“Boss” Tom O’Leary fronts Canada’s premier Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band tribute act. Bruce’s working-class anthems take centre stage: “Born to Run”, “Glory Days”, “Fire”, “Blinded by the Light”, “Hungry Heart”, “Born in the U.S.A.”, “Brilliant Disguise” and yes, “Dancing in the Dark”. Songs of loss, hope, desperation, exaltation, youthful vigour and the grittiness of life’s hard-fought battles. Anyone coming of age in the last quarter of the 20th century had the Boss as the soundtrack to their life’s key moments.

Tom O’Leary and his band honour Bruce with an energetic show that captures the essence of the man and his music. As a special bonus, Oliver local, and Nashville singer/songwriter Kristi Neumann will open for The Boss.

“The Boss — a Tribute to Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band” perform on Saturday May 25 at the Venables Theatre, 6100 Gala Street. Tickets are $35 and available at box office, by phone at 250-498-1626 or online at or below:
