Bruce Springsteen unveils European tour

New album out next week

NEW YORK -- Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will tour behind their new album, "Working on a Dream," with the first stadium dates announced Wednesday for Europe in June and July.

So far, six shows are confirmed, beginning June 2 in Tampere, Finland. The group will also play June 4-5 in Stockholm, June 9-10 in Bergen, Norway, and July 8 in Herning, Denmark. Tickets go on sale Jan. 26.

Springsteen's reps had been cagey about whether he would tour again this year, on the heels of an extensive run in 2007-2008 in support of the album "Magic." The tour grossed about $232 million worldwide, according to Billboard Boxscore.

The group will headline the Super Bowl XLIII halftime show in Tampa, Fla., on Feb. 1; "Working on a Dream" arrives Jan. 27 from Columbia.
