Bruce Springsteen will kick off a 19-date U.S. tour two weeks after his new album, “Wrecking Ball,” comes out.
The Boss had already announced a European tour that started in May, but today he confirmed rumors that the E Street Band would have a short U.S. swing before crossing the Atlantic.
The tour opens March 18 at Atlanta’s Philips Arena and closes May 2 at Newark, N.J’s Prudential Center. The European leg kicks off May 13 in Seville, Spain. “Wrecking Ball” comes out March 6. Springsteen is slated to deliver the keynote address at this year's South By Southwest March 15.
The U.S. jaunt is all arenas, except for a previously unannounced stop at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 26.
“We Take Care Of Our Own,” the first single from the Ron Aniello-produced “Wrecking Ball,” came out last week.
In the press release announcing the dates, the members of the E Street Band are named. Springsteen has yet to say how he will fill the void left by saxophonist Clarence Clemons’ death this summer.
