Gov. Chris Christie made his plea to his “Rock Idol” and fellow Jersey guy Bruce Springsteen about playing at the new Revel Resort at Ovation Hall, and The Boss has other plans in mind.

Words coming out of CBS 3 in Philly is that Springsteen’s publicist has not returned any comment on the governor’s idea of The Boss playing Labor Day weekend to help the Atlantic City economy, and enhance the launch of the new venue along the A.C. Boardwalk.

CBS 3 also released the news that Springsteen is tied to appearing in Philly at Citizens Bank Park on Sept. 2nd – the Sunday of Labor Day weekend (just released through Bruce’s website).   Springsteen’s website shows that there is open dates that Friday and Saturday before the Philly show.  So far the only Jersey dates scheduled for Bruce with The E Street Band include 3 nights at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford (Sept. 19, 21 and 22).  The date in Newark on May 2nd (Prudential Center) has been sold out for quite some time now.

SIDE NOTE: Bruce did announce on his website that the band will be augmented to fill the void from the passing of “The Big Man” Clarence Clemons last June with a five-piece horn section, including Clarence’s nephew Jake Clemons and Eddie Manion on saxophones.
