Bruce Springsteen will be the keynote speaker at 2012’s South By Southwest Music and Media Conference. The Boss follows in the footsteps of such acts as the late Johnny Cash, Robert Plant, Pete Townshend and Neil Young. He will speak March 15 at the Austin event.
Next year is already shaping up to be a big one for Springsteen and The E Street Band. Two weeks ago, he announced that a new album and tour will occur, and since then, we’ve gotten the European dates (see below) and now this. Rumors are that there may be some U.S. dates before the European tour starts in May. Plus, you just know that there’s going to be some awesome secret show in Austin.
Did we mention that "The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story" was nominated for a best boxed or special limited edition package Grammy on Tuesday?
