Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band Set 2012 Dates

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have confirmed the first US leg of a world tour in support of their forthcoming studio album Wrecking Ball. The album is scheduled for release on March 6. Springsteen has been slowly confirming European dates for the past few weeks. Wrecking Ball ‘s first single “We Take Care Of Our Own” is now available at Springsteen’s homepage

For this run of shows, the E Street Band’s official members will include: Max Weinberg (drums), Roy Bittan (piano, synthesizer), Nils Lofgren (guitar, vocals), Patti Scialfa (guitar, vocals), Garry Tallent (bass guitar) and Stevie Van Zandt (guitar, vocals). Soozie Tyrell (violin, guitar, vocals)—who has been with the group since 2002’s The Rising and Charlie Giordano (keyboards)—who replaced the late Danny Federici in 2008—are listed as support players for this tour. There has been no formal announcement as to how the band will deal with the absence of Clarence Clemons, but it appears as if the group will tour without horns.

I am assuming there will also be a show at SXSW to kick off this tour, no?
