He had planned to hit the road throughout this year
Bruce Springsteen has promised fans a “big surprise” for 2021 and says he plans to hit the road with The E Street Band next year.
The Boss released his critically lauded 20th studio album ‘Letter To You’ last October and had planned to embark on a sprawling tour throughout 2021 with The E Street Band – their first trek since The River Tour in 2016 and 2017.
Unsurprisingly the planned 2021 tour has been thwarted by the coronavirus pandemic, however Springsteen says he still has some things up his sleeve for this year.
“I have some projects coming up this year that I won’t tell, because it’s gonna be a secret and then a big surprise,” Springsteen told Sirius XM. “But I do have things to keep me busy this year that I’ll be doing that should give the fans something to bide their time with, you know?”
Reflecting upon when he will tour, Springsteen says 2020 is looking viable: “That, to me, as far as what I know, and if things go as according to what Dr. Fauci is projecting … we’ll be out there and that might be 2022 somewhere in the new year of 2022.
“And I’m completely projecting because no one really knows but that’s what I think according to all the information that’s available.”
Featuring nine completely new Bruce Springsteen tracks together with a trio of previously unreleased songs from the 1970s )'Janey Needs a Shooter,' 'If I Was the Priest' and 'Song for Orphans’), ‘Letter To You’ became Bruce Springsteen’s 12th UK number one album when it was released last autumn.
The album was recorded completely live with the E Street Band over just five days at Springsteen’s home studio in New Jersey.
