On their way to a city near you, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are (probably). Including a February gig in Tampa, Florida, the musician, 72, and his bandmates announced 31 additional U.S. tour dates on Tuesday.
The tour will conclude on April 14 with a homecoming concert in Newark, New Jersey, after stops in Washington, D.C., Seattle, and Houston. Afterward, Springsteen and his band will go to Europe for a tour that will be unveiled in May of this year. First, the band will perform in the United States from April through July, then return for a second North American tour in August.
This is the first time in six years that the “Thunder Road” singer and his band have been on the road together, and they’ve announced the tour dates in May.
At the time, the singer told SiriusXM station E Street Radio host Jim Rotolo, “It’s sort of mind-boggling, to be honest with you.” “Even though it doesn’t seem like that much time has passed, At this point, I’m itching to perform in front of an audience. Because of this, I am quite excited to perform in front of our enthusiastic audience.”
As of 2019, Springsteen has released two albums (Western Stars in 2019 and A Letter To You in 2020), as well as a solo New York City concert residency dubbed Springsteen on Broadway, which ended last year after more than 200 performances. Preparations for the next tour will begin in January, according to the Grammy winner, who also hinted at a lineup that would include both old and new songs.
A “long E Street Band tour” is what he’s referring to. “Everybody’s really enthused about it,” he stated. “A large portion of it will feature new stuff, but we’ll also play a lot of the classics the fans have grown to adore. It’s important to have a decent mix. A good concert should have a modern vibe to it, while yet making you feel at home. That, then, is our end aim.”
“It’s going to be a full-on rock and roll concert,” he said. Nils Lofgren, Roy Bittan, Garry Tallent, Stevie Van Zandt, and Max Weinberg make up the core of the E Street Band, which also includes Soozie Tyrell, Jake Clemons, and Charlie Giordano on keyboards.
