UPDATED: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band WILL NOT TOUR In 2019

posted Dec 2, 2018, 6:55 AM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Dec 4, 2018, 5:37 PM ]

Update: Bruce Springsteen has released a statement saying that he will not be touring in 2019 with the band and will be working on "various recording projects." 

Full statement: Just a note to quell some of the rumors over here on E Street. While we hope to be back with you soon, the E Street Band won’t be touring in 2019. Before I go back to my day job, the year will be consumed with a break after our Broadway run and various recording projects I’ve been working on. We do hope to see you soon, and until then, we have some mighty E Streeters out there regularly performing with their own projects who’d love and deserve your support. All love and Happy Holidays!

- Bruce Springsteen

In a new interview with with the UK's Sunday Times Magazine, a hint was dropped about Springsteen's future plans in regards to both his new album (that has been talked about for years) and a possible new E Street Band tour for next year. Here are a couple excerpts  from the interview that drop some hints:

In any case, he’ll soon be “back to my day job” — touring with the E Street Band, including venues in the UK. He will also release a new album, his first for five years: “For lack of a better word, it’s a singer-songwriter album — more of a solo record.” His fans would prefer to see “the Boss” on stage than on the stump, he says...

When he tours in the next few months with the E Street Band, he may have to forgo the energetic knee slides across the stage and crowd surfing that were once trademark features of concerts that stretched to four hours and more. But otherwise he’s making no concessions.

It’s welcome news for the millions who look back on their lives to the soundtrack of five decades of Springsteen’s music. And he has a clear message for those watching him for their cue to ease off the throttle, kick back and retire: “Don’t stop … keep going.”

Can we look forward to another decade of rocking?

“Sure. Why not.”

By the way the article is worded, we can possibly expect to see a "solo" record that is backed by an E Street Band tour that does specifically say within the next few months. There have been other rumors going around such as Bruce playing Notre Dame stadium and the Glastonbury festival this summer. I wasn't holding my breathe for those rumors to come to fruition but this interview seems to stir the pot of a possible E Street Band spring/summer tour. 

Confidence in Rumor Score: 4/10: There have been rumors going around the past few months talking about Springsteen touring in the summer. There is still no direct quote from Springsteen himself saying that they will likely hit the road. At least that is not evident in this interview. Maybe the reporter took Springsteen's quote of "back to my day job" as touring with the E Street Band, which is why I gave this a cautious score of a 4/10. Keep checking back as I will update the rumors page with any other rumors that may have some substance.

Springsteen Producer Posts Photo Of Max Weinberg In Bruce's Home Studio

posted Aug 27, 2018, 5:24 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Aug 27, 2018, 5:28 PM ] interesting story post from Springsteen's producer, Ron Aniello, made an appearance on his instagram account today (@anyoneforthetruth). The picture below was taken from his instagram account and shows the mighty Max Weinberg in Springsteen's home studio. Aniello has produced both Wrecking Ball and High Hopes for Springsteen as of late. However, he does also have ties to Springsteen's wife and the release of her new albums so technically it could be for her upcoming album. 

It's my belief though that Max Weinberg would not be called in to record on a Patti Scafila record. Who knows though. It's an interesting tidbit of information that could shine light onto a possible new Springsteen record...or dare I even E Street record? 

Now who wants to dive into some computer forensics and clear up the notebook on the music stand?

RUMOR: Springsteen On Broadway May Be Extended Through June

According to reports from the NYPost and BroadwayWorld Springsteen may be ready to extend his Broadway run "possibly even to June." The current schedule has The Boss playing the Walter Kerr Theater through early February. There have been reports of Springsteen maybe taking this Broadway show to London but it sounds like the highly praised performance may be staying put in New York City for a bit longer. Keep it here for any of the latest developments.

RUMOR: Bruce Springsteen Summer 2018 Tour?

posted Sep 19, 2017, 12:33 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Sep 20, 2017, 5:36 AM ]

With Springsteen's Broadway run only a few weeks away, here's something else to get excited about. Over the past week, I have heard that Bruce Springsteen may be exploring to tour in the summer of next year. Over on the BTX fan forum, user BruceAdam28 posted  that Springsteen will be playing in Philadelphia next year at Citizens Bank Park, the local baseball stadium where Springsteen has played in the past. We've also heard that San Siro over in Milan, Italy is being rumored for sometime next year from an Italian newspaper. Of course, take these with a grain of salt as the rumors may just be" holds" for a potential tour. Springsteen's team has been known to do this in the past and then cancel the holds on venues if the tour doesn't pan out. Either way, if the rumors are indeed true, it appears the E Street Band would be joining Springsteen as the two locations rumored have been stadiums. We'll update you if we hear of any other rumors or information. Folks, don’t get your hopes up or think that this is set in stone, we post rumors as we see/hear them. In the meantime, enjoy Springsteen on Broadway if you were lucky enough to score some tickets! 

We're going to start something new as many people think a rumor for some reason means it's for sure happening:

Confidence in rumor score: 3/10. Is it possible? Yes, but I wouldn't start making summer plans around a Springsteen 2018 tour.

RUMOR: Bruce Springsteen To Have Broadway Residency This Fall

posted Jun 16, 2017, 3:59 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated Jul 20, 2017, 3:48 PM ]

Update: New details emerged from the New York Post about the possible future Springsteen broadway run this fall. Click here to read the New York Post update. It sounds like the Walter Kerr Theater owner is getting nervous as Springsteen does not seem to be in a hurry to announce his broadway show. The owner has reportedly also turned down play offers to keep the fall months open for Springsteen. It now appears that Springsteen will be reading from his memoir, Born To Run, and picking up his guitar to illustrate a point within the book. Probably not what many people wanted to hear, but hey, it's better than nothing. As the article alludes, the tickets will probably sell out instantly so there is no real rush to announce these shows. However, if they are happening in the fall, a late summer announcement may be incoming. 

Ok, everyone keep calm, no pushing or shoving. This is a huge rumor and it comes from The New York Post. Bruce Springsteen is rumored to take up a residency starting this November in New York City at the Walter Kerr Theater. Sources told The New York Post that Springsteen wants to play smaller and more intimate shows for his fans and came up with the idea of performing in a Broadway Theater. The Walter Kerr Theater holds only 975 people, so expect tickets to sell out instantly if this rumor pans out to be true. Read the full article by clicking here.

It is also reported that Springsteen will perform five shows a week, for eight weeks at the Theater. I must say that this raises my suspicion. Five nights a week seems a little high to me personally. Furthermore, it sounds like the Theater will not charge Springsteen any rent, pretty good deal for The Boss. I am nervous about one thing, ticket pricing. This is going to be pretty tricky and it's obvious that this run of shows will be the hottest ticket in town come the fall. The thought of this rumor panning true just sends goosebumps down your body. I think it's safe to say that The New York Post would not just publish any article without having some sort of confidence in their sources. Needless to say, let's all say a prayer tonight that this rumor turns out to be true. 


RUMOR: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band In Talks To Play Desert Trip II

posted Mar 8, 2017, 3:23 PM by Brandon Thompson   [ updated May 15, 2017, 5:30 PM ]

Ok, who knows if this will actually happen but there are talks about Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band possibly playing at the possible Desert Trip II festival later this year in California. Rolling Stone has even recently discussed the possibility of Bruce Springsteen performing this year. And to be honest, they give some pretty good reasons why Springsteen might play and why he may not. 

There have also been talks on Springsteen fan boards about this event with one person stating that the band was already in negotiations. Granted, that does not mean that the band will 100% play, they were just in the negotiation stages. We have heard as of late that the solo album project, that we all assumed would be next, may have been pushed by the waysides yet again. Could this rumor play a role in that? Possibly. Either way, it's nice to be able to bring a rumor back to the site as I know how much you all enjoy them. Keep it here for the latest updates and hopefully we'll learn more soon.

RUMOR: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band To Also Play Japan In 2017

posted Aug 8, 2016, 6:44 AM by Brandon Thompson

Last week we told you about how we heard Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band were going to be playing Australia in early 2017, we have now been told, by two separate sources, that Japan will also be included during the stops in early 2017. As we mentioned last week, we are not 100% sure about what the band will be touring behind but we're not so confident it will be behind the new "solo" album, so it is very possible that The River Tour may be continued/revitalized into 2017. Things are for sure picking up steam so we could be a few weeks away from an official announcement which should clear many things up. Stay tuned...

RUMOR: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band To Play Australia In Early 2017

posted Aug 4, 2016, 9:40 AM by Brandon Thompson

I have great confidence in this rumor as it comes from someone who is rarely wrong. Bruce Springsteen is apparently confirmed to be hitting the road again in the early months of 2017 and one of the stops will include Australia. That's not it, to my surprise we were also told that The E Street Band will be joining The Boss during these shows. With rumors of a "solo" album flying around, it raises some questions if Bruce has delayed the album all together (again) or if he changed his mind and decided to bring the band out to tour behind the new album. We believe it is likely that the band will not be touring behind the new Springsteen album unless Bruce has changed his mind on how he wants to present the new material in concert. Either way it appears that at least Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will be hitting the road in some fashion in early 2017. 

To add to the speculation of this rumor, Australian promoters are going on the radio waves saying that they are expecting Bruce and The E Street Band to be hitting Aussie next year in February/March along with other major musical acts. 

RUMOR: "Chapter and Verse" Album To Be Tied In With Upcoming Book Release

posted Jul 19, 2016, 11:04 AM by Brandon Thompson

I originally was not going to post this rumor as I myself doubted it, however, it seems to be picking up some steam. I decided to ultimately post it so you can make up your own mind. The rumors are coming from the GreasyLake fan forum page. 

"I am hearing that the new record is a tie in with the autobiography and is called CHAPTER AND VERSE. It has 6 new/unreleased songs on it, not sure if they are outtakes or newly written, and at least 12 previously released tracks with each corresponding to a chapter, Eg- Growin' Up." 

Another post suggested, "from another source, not from NS and not Australian, the release of a compilation record tied to the book seems in very advanced work. If so, to be confirmed soon including the content. The 'new record' should be released later."

If this rumor is true, it appears that a few "bonus tracks" may be included in the rumored book album called Chapter and Verse and that the new full solo album will come out later, most likely early in 2017. Springsteen would also not be the first artist to do something along these lines so it is certainly possible. When thinking about it, it's really not a bad idea as it gives the fans a little bonus item along with the new book. I guess we will find out in the coming weeks if this pans out to be true. 


After River Tour, Bruce Book Tour Up Next According To Tweet

posted Jul 4, 2016, 9:58 AM by Brandon Thompson

Garry Tallent, Bruce's Bassist, responded to a fan's question on Twitter a few days ago. The fan asked if Bruce and the band would be back for a second European leg after this current one concludes. Garry responded "No, Bruce's book tour is next." To what extent a book tour means is unknown. It could just be a few appearances on talk shows or possibly even smaller venues where Bruce can talk about the book directly with the crowd which could be an interesting event to attend to say the least. Either way, it appears that Bruce will do some sort of "tour" or promotion for his upcoming book due out this September.
