Bruce Springsteen Reveals Fall Stadium Tour Dates (Video)
Bruce Springsteen is hitting the road again.
The Boss revealed on Friday a list of eight stops for his upcoming fall stadium tour. The trek kicks off Aug. 18 at Boston's Gillette Stadium, and Springsteen will take his final bow on Sept. 22 in his native New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.
The Wrecking Ball Tour, in promotion of his 17th studio album and first new offering in three years, officially began on March 18th in Atlanta. "Generally speaking, in the first half of the tour we usually emphasize the new album," E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt told Rolling Stone. "The second half of the tour tends to loosen up a bit, get a little bit more spontaneous, a little bit crazier." The first leg of the tour will wrap on May 2 in Newark before picking back up in Europe for the summer.

Also on Friday, Springsteen released a video follow-up to the album's lead single, "We Take Care of Our Own." The official clip for "Death To My Hometown" features snippets from various live performances -- with Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello -- including shows at New York's Apollo Theater, South By Southwest and Atlanta.
