Bruce Springsteen River Tour

Update (2/26/16): The tour has been expanded yet again with dates in Europe, the U.K. and Ireland now taking the band well into July.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have extended the U.S. run of The River tour with 14 new shows. They’ve also announced a date (see below) in Portugal to headline the first night of Rock in Rio Lisboa, which could be a precursor to a European leg.

The band also rescheduled their Madison Square Garden concert postponed last Sunday due to the blizzard. Tickets for the original date will be honored on the new night.

The new U.S. dates will begin with a third and final show at Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena on March 19th. The extended tour will take the classic rock legend to several West and Midwest markets, including Denver, Dallas and Detroit, wrapping with two shows at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, April 23 and 25. Tickets for the new performances go on sale at various dates/times. Click here to purchase.

During each stop on the North American leg of The River Tour, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band give an in-sequence performance of the 20 songs from 1980’s The River. He previously had performed the album only once in its entirety, during a 2009 concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The current tour’s three-hour-plus sets also include such favorites as “Rosalita,” “Dancing in the Dark,” “Thunder Road” and “Born to Run.”

The River Tour, Springsteen’s first in two years, follows the December release of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, a boxed set that contains the original The River album, along with outtakes, unreleased songs and a two-hour concert film from 1980.
