NEWS

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have announced 15 new tour dates in the U.S. starting April 8 in Ohio, and will make a stops at Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach April 12, Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte April 19 and PNC Arena in Raleigh April 24. 

Springsteen made his 2014 live debut Jan. 26 in South Africa with “a sweat-drenched rock ‘n roll spectacle” (Mail & Guardian.) They are currently earning similar raves on the road in Australia – where parts of The Boss’ new album ‘High Hopes’ was recorded – including a 5-star live review from the Sydney Morning Herald, who said, “If you only see two shows this year, see this one. Twice. (And then see it again.)”

Tickets go on sale Feb. 21.
