Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will mark their return to the road in early February, 2023 with a string of now announced US arena dates, followed by European stadium shows kicking off on April 28th in Barcelona and a second North American tour leg starting in August.
In announcing the tour, The Boss said: “After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year. And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there, next year — and beyond”.
The now announced US shows include dates in Tampa, Atlanta, Orlando, Hollywood, Dallas, Austin, Houston, New York City, a hometown show at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey and many more.
The planned European stops are Barcelona, Dublin, Paris, Ferrara, Rome, Amsterdam, Landgraaf, Zurich, Werchter, Düsseldorf, Gothenburg, Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vienna, Munich and Monza.
The UK dates have now been announced, including two nights at BST Hyde Park, one date at Villa Park in Birmingham and one at BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.
Alongside the newly announced UK Shows, rumours and discussion have flooded the internet around a particular set of dates that are free on Springsteen's tour calendar, opening up the possibility of an appearance at Glastonbury Festival, his first since his headline set in 2009.
While the Saturday of Glastonbury conflicts with a date in Gothenburg, the Friday and Sunday remain free in the Boss' calendar.
To further spur on the rumours, Springsteen joined Paul McCartney onstage during the Beatle's headline set on the Pyramid Stage in June to perform Springsteen's own Glory Road, as well as The Beatles' 'I Wanna Be Your Man' and 'The End' with Foo Fighters' frontman Dave Grohl.
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.
Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band last reconnected to perform on Saturday Night Live in December 2020, where they launched live versions of two songs from their most recent studio album Letter To You, which reached Number One in eleven countries and marked the band’s first time recording live together in decades.
Last year, Springsteen unveiled his never-before-released The Legendary 1979 No Nukes Concerts film, collaborated with President Barack Obama on the book Renegades: Born In The USA and reprised his record-setting show Springsteen On Broadway to help reopen New York City theaters last summer.
The E Street Band’s members are: Roy Bittan – piano, synthesizer; Nils Lofgren – guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa – guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent – bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt – guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg – drums; Soozie Tyrell – violin, guitar, vocals; Jake Clemons – saxophone; and Charlie Giordano – keyboards.
Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band have already surpassed one million tickets sold on their just-announced 2023 tour dates in Europe and have added even more new shows across the continent for their return to the road next year.
New shows have been added in Barcelona, Dublin, Oslo, Gothenburg, Paris, Amsterdam and Hockenheim due to overwhelming demand.
