Bruce Springsteen Announces U.S. Tour Dates
Fans of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band with high hopes for another round of shows got their prayers answered on Monday morning with the announcement of 15 more U.S. tour dates.
The shows will kick off Apr. 8 in Cincinnati, Ohio at the U.S. Bank Arena and wrap at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun casino on May 18. Tickets go on sale for various dates on Feb. 14.
This is good news for American audiences, as the band has been on fire with their overseas shows, which began in South Africa and swung through Australia and have featured a cover of AC/DC’s "Highway to Hell" and a tribute to the late Pete Seeger, who passed away last month.
Springsteen's latest studio album, High Hopes (Columbia Records), debuted at No. 1 in 20 countries last month. His first official tour of South Africa grossed $5.2 million from 79,358 sold tickets at four shows, according to Billboard BoxScore.
