springsteen wrecking ball Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announce North American tour dates

As previously reported, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band plan to tour the world extensively behind their new LP, Wrecking Ball. With a slew of European tour dates already confirmed for the summer, the Boss has now unveiled the first leg of their upcoming North American tour.

The trek kicks off in Atlanta on March 13th and takes Bruce and co. along the East coast until mid-April. Toward the end of the month, the band will play a string of dates on the West coast, and then they’ll travel to New Orleans for a headlining appearance at the New Orleans Jazz Fest. (Side note: The Jazz Fest appearance has a fascinating backstory.)

Update: According to an issued press release, the band’s touring lineup includes: Roy Bittan (piano, synthesizer), Nils Lofgren (guitar, vocals), Patti Scialfa (guitar, vocals), Garry Tallent (bass guitar), Stevie Van Zandt (guitar, vocals), Max Weinberg (drums), Soozie Tyrell (violin, guitar, vocals), and Charlie Giordano (keyboards). There’s still no word on the replacement for the band’s saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who died last year.

Check out the band’s complete tour schedule below. Specific on-sale dates and other ticketing information can be found on their website.

Wrecking Ball is out March 6th via Columbia.
