Bruce Springsteen continues to add dates to his 2023 international tour with the E Street Band. The original tour announcement arrived at the stroke of midnight ET on May 24, 2022. The band will mark their return to the road in early February 2023 with a string of to-be-announced U.S. arena dates, followed by European stadium shows kicking off on April 28 in Barcelona and a second North American tour leg starting in August. When tickets went on sale in late May, additional dates were added in many of the cities. On June 8, two more shows were added with the total now at 26. More than one million tickets have been sold so far.

Said Springsteen: “After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year. And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there, next year — and beyond.”

The planned European stops are Barcelona, Dublin, Paris, Ferrara, Rome, Amsterdam, Landgraaf, Zurich, Düsseldorf, Gothenburg, Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vienna, Munich, Hockenheim and Monza. More cities and shows in the U.K. and Belgium will be announced at a later date.

These 2023 dates will mark the first live shows for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band since the conclusion of their 14-month, worldwide The River Tour in February 2017. The River Tour was named 2016’s top global tour by both Billboard and Pollstar.

The E Street Band’s members are: Roy Bittan – piano, synthesizer; Nils Lofgren – guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa – guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent – bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt – guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg – drums; with Soozie Tyrell – violin, guitar, vocals; Jake Clemons – saxophone; and Charlie Giordano – keyboards.

At just after 12N ET on Monday, Springsteen’s social media platforms had teased an announcement for May 24. The 15-second clip showed the most recent E Street Band lineup performing “Born in the USA.”

Springsteen had broached the subject of a 2022 tour with the E Street Band during a March 9 appearance on SiriusXM’s E Street Radio. “We’re getting our plans for touring together, we’ll be out there,” he told host Jim Rotolo. “We hope to be out there this year. I just didn’t have confidence or wanted to take the risk for my audience that it was going to be okay so we put it off for a little while, but we’re working on plans to get it all together.”

Since the E Street Band’s last tour ended on Feb. 25, 2017, in New Zealand of all places, Springsteen has had two lengthy runs of Springsteen on Broadway, his one-man show of songs and stories. He’s also appeared as a guest at numerous one-off events. The band’s last U.S. performance was on Sept. 14, 2016, at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

    Still no England on that list (not to mention Scotland & Wales as well) – personally I think Bruce should make it up to us (in England) by doing a few smaller scale gigs in Brighton (maybe the Dome?) come on Bruce, do the right thing…

    will Bruce and the band play in Las Vegas for the first time since 2002 ? Allegiant Stadium and T-Mobile Arena are waiting, time to end the 20 year boycott.
