Bruce Springsteen will make a rare TV appearance when performs on Sunday (June 10th) at The American Theatre Wing’s 72nd Annual Tony Awards, which airs on CBS at 8 pm, live from New York City's Radio City Music Hall. Springsteen who'll receive the prize along with this year's other "special" Tony honoree, John Leguizamo, is being saluted for "for his ongoing engagement Springsteen On Broadway, a once-in-a-lifetime theatregoing experience for the Broadway stage, allowing fans an intimate look at a music idol."

Bruce Springsteen, whose Springsteen On Broadway shows sheds light on some of the darker memories of his childhood, explained that dealing with your past is the easiest way to find peace in your present: "The price for not sorting through the issues that make up your emotional life and the choices you're making doesn't stay the same. It gets higher all the time. It gets higher from the same answers and the tricks and the lies you told yourself at 22 -- you feel pretty good: 'I'm just goin' on down the road.' Y'know, 25, 26, 28, -- 'feel a little less comfortable -- but everything's okay (laughs), y'know?' But the older you get, the price goes up. The price goes up, and it keeps getting higher and higher and higher. And you pay more on a daily basis for not coming to grips for some of those things." at Manhattan's Walter Kerr Theatre.
