Bruce Springsteen - Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band Announce 16 New Tour Dates


Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are extending their already-hefty world tour, Billboard have announced. The Jersey band are currently nearing the end of an 11 week venture out on the road, where they have been impressing fans and critics alike with old hits, as well as material from the Boss' latest album The Wrecking Ball. Now, they have announced an additional 16 dates in the US and Canada. The added dates, totalling sixteen new concerts, will commence on October 19, 2012 in Ottawa and will run through until December 6, in Glendale, Arizona.
On the current leg of the tour, Springsteen made headlines when he played the Hard Rock Calling event in London's Hyde Park. He was joined onstage by Sir Paul Mccartney, formerly of The Beatles, and they were impressing the crowd with a rendition of the Beatles number Twist and Shout when the decision was made to pull the plug on the concert, as it had over-ran. The incident made headline news and Springsteen's guitarist Steve Van Zandt took to Twitter to complain, mistakenly thinking that London's Metropolitan Police force had been the ones responsible for the loss of power. In actual fact, it had been the event organisers, who were conscious that Springsteen's epic set had already over-run.
In a recent interview with The New Yorker, Springsteen revealed that he has suffered a long-standing battle with depression, since the early 1980s. He admitted though that his emotional turmoil is what drives his legendary live performances and helps to make them so powerful
