Van Zandt Uncertain of Springsteen Dates
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band wrap up their tour in support of last year's Wrecking Ball with two shows in Ireland at the end of July. Aside from a festival gig in South America in September, no more dates have been scheduled.
Rolling Stone asked E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt if the Boss has any more tour dates lined up: “I really, really don't know,” said Van Zandt. “I know that Bruce is off in August. But what happens in October-November, I don't know. I really don't. I would tell you, but I don't know. It's possible we've passed the point where it's even possible now. I'd always heard that the tour was ending in September. I've heard that for the last year and a half. Then you start hearing rumors on the street. Half the time they're true, so I never know.”
If the touring behind Wrecking Ball is indeed done, it’s more likely that Bruce will start working on a new album. Bruce did record with the E Street Band earlier this year while they were on tour in Australia.
Finally, Van Zandt said: “I've been saying this for 40 years, certainly since Darkness on the Edge of Town, but he literally always has an album in his pocket. He usually has two of them.”
