Bruce Springsteen is releasing a new album IN 2012. He’s also announced he’ll be hitting the road for a string of U.S. dates with the E Street Band, according to Rolling Stone.
Bruce Springsteen and pals will begin a 19 date tour on March 18 at Phillips Arena in Atlanta. The tour will wind its way up the East Coast, including multiple dates in New Jersey and at Madison Square Garden, before hitting New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and wrapping up May 2 in Newark. The group will tour Europe in the summer and return for another North American tour in the fall.
It will be the first E Street Band tour without saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who died last year. There’s no word on whether Clemons’s spot in the group will be filled by another player. Springsteen’s new studio album, Wrecking Ball, will be released on March 6.
