Bruce Springsteen is offering fans another chance to get in to see his Broadway Springsteen On Springsteen show — on opening night, in fact. 

Springsteen has donated an unspecified number of front-row tickets to the October 12 show — the official opening night after seven nights of previews — at the Walter Kerr Theatre to benefit the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS organization.

Bids, with a $25,000 suggested minimum, are being accepted at through 5 p.m. EST on Thursday (September 21); It’s a blind auction, meaning bids are submitted without knowledge of any others. The high bidders will be announced on Friday (September 22). The October 12 show is invitation-only, with no tickets sold to the public.

Springsteen On Springsteen is currently booked through February 3, with a minimum of five shows per week.
