Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Announce Summer Stadium Tour

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are five shows into their 2023 world tour, and they’ve just rolled out dates for a series of late summer stadium shows in North America, followed by arena dates later in the year. The new leg kicks off Aug. 9 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, and wraps up Dec. 8 at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California. Ticket on-sales begin this Friday.

The tour began on Feb. 1 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. Utilizing an expanded E Street Band featuring a five-piece horn section, four backup singers, and a percussionist, Springsteen played a set that mixed classics like “Born To Run,” “Badlands,” and “The Promised Land” with selections from 2020’s Letter To You and deep cuts, including “The E Street Shuffle,” “Johnny 99,” and “Candy’s Room.” The setlist remained relatively locked in over the next four nights, but he did add in “Thunder Road,” “Ramrod,” “Darlington County,” “Mansion on the Hill,” and “Detroit Medley.”

Guitarist Steven Van Zandt missed the February 10 show in Dallas after coming down with Covid. Background singer/guitarist Patti Scialfa and violinist/guitarist Soozie Tyrell were absent as well. The result was a fairly unique show where Springsteen and Nils Lofgren handled all the guitar parts. There hadn’t been a setup like that since the 1988 Amnesty International Human Rights Now! tour. After the show, the news came out that Lofgren had come down with Covid as well.

The tour resumes tonight at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, and the initial American leg concludes on April 14 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Springsteen and the band will spend much of the summer in Europe playing stadiums and a handful of festivals.

This tour follows a six-year break from the road for the E Street Band, their longest since reforming in 1999. Ticket prices were considerably higher than previous tours, creating an enormous fan backlash even though most shows still sold out. “You don’t like to be criticized,” Springsteen told Rolling Stone last year. “You certainly don’t like to be the poster boy for high ticket prices. It’s the last thing you prefer to be. But that’s how it went. You have to own the decisions you have made and go out and just continue to do your best. And that was my take on it. I think if folks come to the show, they’re going to have a good time.”
