Bruce Springsteen, E Street Band Announce 2023 Tour

Bruce Springsteen is hitting the stage once again.

Springsteen, 72, and the E Street band are set to play a string of U.S. shows in early 2023 before heading out on the road in Europe, followed by another batch of North American concerts, they announced early Tuesday. The U.S. arena dates, which kick off in February, have yet to be announced.

The band last played on stage together in Australia in February 2017, upon wrapping their 14-month The River Tour. They performed together on “SNL” in 2020.

“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,” Springsteen said in a statement. “See you out there, next year—and beyond.”
