Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Announce Tour Behind ‘The River’

Music News

As expected, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will hit the road next month, for a nine-week, 24-date tour. Although Springsteen has performed several of his albums in their entirety live over the recent years, “The River Tour 2016,” marks the first time that Springsteen has gone on the road performing an album in full on a nightly basis. As opposed to 1975’s Born To Run and 1984 Born In The U.S.A., 1980’s The River has only been performed top to tail once before, on November 8th, 2009 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The new trek is in support of “The Boss’” new box set, The Ties The Bind: ‘This River’ Sessions. Tickets go on sale on Friday, December 11th.

Springsteen kicks the shows off on January 16th at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s Consol Energy Center and wraps over two nights — March 15th and 17th — at L.A.’s Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. Springsteen announced that each night of the tour will be mixed for release on as high-quality downloads and CD’s. Recordings will be available within days of each performance.

After 1975’s Born To Run album, Springsteen refocused the romantic scenes in his work onto the real lives and responsibilities of people who were grappling just to survive day to day: “What happened was, I got to a point where the answers that I found in my favorite rock n’ roll records, they didn’t work for me anymore. Y’know, I couldn’t find what I wanted in a Phil Spector record anymore. The whole thing wasn’t workin’ out. It wasn’t workin’ (laughs) — the way the old story goes — the way you thought it was gonna work out.”
