Bruce Springsteen wants to tour the US next year.

The musical legend will embark on a five-week tour of South Africa, Australia and New Zealand with his group the E Street Band in February, just five weeks after his LP 'High Hopes' is released, but he admits he'd like to visit America at some point in 2014 as they haven't played there since 2012.

Speaking to the Rolling Stone magazine, he said: ''I don't want to say yes because I don't want to disappoint people, but I certainly don't want to rule it out either. We're looking closely out at since there's places we missed on the last tour. We didn't get to Texas, where I love to play. We didn't get to Florida either. It might be fun to get back to some of those places.''

Meanwhile, the 64-year-old star previously revealed that his new album will feature tracks he has played live or recorded in the past, but which had never made the cut - until now.

He said last month: ''This is music I always felt needed to be released. From the gangsters of 'Harry's Place', the ill-prepared roomies on 'Frankie Fell In Love' (shades of Steve and I bumming together in our Asbury Park apartment) the travellers in the wasteland of 'Hunter Of Invisible Game', to the soldier and his visiting friend in 'The Wall', I felt they all deserved a home and a hearing. Hope you enjoy it.''
