Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will mark their return to the road in early February 2023 with a string of to-be-announced US arena dates, followed by European stadium shows kicking off on 28th April in Barcelona and a second North American tour leg starting in August. The plan is to include UK dates, but these are still being finalised.
These 2023 dates will mark the first live shows for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band since the conclusion of their 14-month, worldwide The River Tour in Australia in February 2017. The River Tour was named 2016’s top global tour by both Billboard and Pollstar.
The E Street Band’s members are: Roy Bittan – piano, synthesiser; Nils Lofgren – guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa – guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent – bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt – guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg – drums; with Soozie Tyrell – violin, guitar, vocals; Jake Clemons – saxophone; and Charlie Giordano – keyboards.
All very well, but who wants to stand at the back of a field? Or pay through the nose for resale “pit” tickets…
Well, I know what you mean but the truthful answer is several hundred thousand people. Because waiting for that intimate E Street Band gig might be a long wait.
