An announcement on Bruce Springsteen’s website has revealed that the singer is set to return to action next year. “A lot of you have been hearing that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be on tour in 2012,” reads the statement. “That is absolutely correct. The European dates run from the middle of May until end of July and are being announced this week. In addition, we want you to know that the music is almost done (but still untitled), we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet), and that we are all incredibly excited about everything that we’re planning for 2012. That’s all the info we have for right now, but we’ll get back to you — real soon.”
Dates confirmed so far are June 21st, Stadium of Light in Sunderland; June 22nd, Etihad Stadium in Manchester; June 24th, Isle of Wight Festival; July 14th, Hard Rock Calling in London.
