Steven Van Zandt - Steven Van Zandt Trying To Balance Tour Life With Springsteen With Tv Success

Rocker Steven Van Zandt is desperately trying to rework his acting schedule so he doesn't miss any Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band concerts.
The guitarist committed to a second season of his cult drama Lilyhammer before The Boss had confirmed dates for the band's Wrecking Ball tour - and now he and Springsteen are trying to figure out the logistics to accommodate Van Zandt's schedule.
He tells RollingStone.com, "I made commitments before the tour even existed and we're still trying to figure it all out, and we won't know for another couple of months.
"Bruce and (manager) Jon Landau are very, very understanding about this and very supportive of my TV career. They're gonna try and bend things around as much as they can. And then, if they can't, I gotta miss a few things."
Lilyhammer, a Norwegian show about a mobster forced to move to Norway, premiered in Europe in January (12) and became a huge hit.
Van Zandt adds, "It's been amazing to see how big a deal this has become."
