The trek kicks off next February
Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band are back. After a lengthy hiatus, The Boss and the E Street Band will return to the road next February. It is the group’s first tour since 2017. The world tour kicks off with a string of to-be-announced US arena dates, followed by European stadium shows beginning on April 28 in Barcelona and a second North American tour leg starting in August.

“After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year,” Springsteen said. “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 planned European stops are Barcelona, Dublin, Paris, Ferrara, Rome, Amsterdam, Landgraaf, Zurich, Düsseldorf, Gothenburg, Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vienna, Munich and Monza. Additional cities and shows in the UK and Belgium will be announced at a later date.
These 2023 dates will mark the first live shows for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band since their 14-month, worldwide River Tour. The River Tour was named 2016’s top global tour by both Billboard and Pollstar. The trek wrapped up in February of 2017 in Australia.
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 (Columbia Records), which reached #1 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 is Roy Bittan on piano and synthesizer, Nils Lofgren on guitar and vocals, Patti Scialfa on guitar and vocals, Garry Tallent on bass, Stevie Van Zandt on guitar and vocals, and Max Weinberg on drums, along with Soozie Tyrell on violin, guitar and vocals, Jake Clemons on saxophone, and Charlie Giordano on keyboards.
Jake Clemons is the nephew of original E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons. Jake was welcomed into the group following the death of Clarence in 2012. Jake Weinberg, son of E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg, is the drummer of metal titans Slipknot.
