The Bruce Springsteen solo show, “Springsteen on Broadway,” set to run Oct. 3 to Nov. 26, has been extended 10 weeks, to Feb. 3, Ticketmaster announced.

Tickets went on sale Monday morning via the company’s Verified Fan service, which allowed potential ticket-buyers who had preregistered to receive a code that would allow them to buy two tickets. Remaining registrants were placed on standby but should now be serviced by the extended run.

Despite the precautions to attempt to avoid bots and others from buying blocs of tickets for resale, the secondary market soon offered ticket prices as high as $7,500, Variety reported.

The five-day-a-week show, set for the 960-seat Walter Kerr Theatre, will include both song performances and readings from his memoir, Born to Run. Previews begin Oct. 3, with the official opening on Oct. 12.
