Nineteen tour dates have been announced for Bruce Springsteen’s upcoming tour, according to BruceSpringsteen.net.
Springsteen will be hitting the road to promote his new album We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. Blogcritics.org unveiled Springsteen’s European dates. Those dates will precede the US tour dates and, according to his website, have already sold out.
Springsteen will not be backed by his E-Street Band on this tour but will instead be backed by what he is billing The Seeger Sessions Band. That lineup was also unveiled:
Sam Bardfeld (violin), Art Baron (tuba), Frank Bruno (guitar), Jeremy Chatzky (upright bass), Larry Eagle (drums), Charles Giordano (accordion, keyboards), Curtis King (vocals), Greg Liszt (banjo), Lisa Lowell (vocals), Eddie Manion (sax), Cindy Mizelle (vocals), Mark Pender (trumpet), Marty Rifkin (pedal steel guitar), Richie “La Bamba” Rosenberg (trombone), Patti Scialfa (vocals), Marc Anthony Thompson (vocals), and Soozie Tyrell (violin).
