Those who couldn't were dismayed to see numerous tickets for the in-demand shows showing up nearly immediately on ticket-reselling site StubHub at wildly inflated prices - despite Ticketmaster instituting its Verified Fan program meant to shut down scalpers.

If you didn't score any "Springsteen on Broadway" tickets Wednesday morning, you'll have another shot to see The Boss in NY very soon.

However, Ticketmaster cautions desperate fans not to cave in and fork over big bucks to scalpers, as they may not even have the tickets they claim to be selling.

Despite Ticketmaster's precaution 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. Registering does not guarantee you will receive a code to purchase tickets.

The guards were also put on alert at various points of 271 kilometers of border that Bangladesh shares with Myanmar in the country's south-east.

The presale for the next batch of Springsteen tickets will take place next Thursday, September 7 at 10:00 AM ET. Fans who did not sign up the first time around may register to take part in the Verified Fan presale for the additional shows. Registering again or a few times does not increase your chances to receive an offer code. Tickets for the initial run sold out yesterday, the same day they went on sale.

Playbill reports Springsteen has extended his run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which is set to begin October 3, from November 26 to February 3, 2018.

Bruce Springsteen performs at Stand Up For Heroes, Nov. 1, 2016 in NY.
