Please keep in mind, we are just a fan blog. We are not insiders. We just post rumors for fans that want to hear and read about them.
Ok, so instead of doing separate rumors for each date and location, I decided to just set up one page where it can all be found. So keep checking back here and we will update this page along with our Twitter page on the new rumored possible cities and dates that go with them. Keep in mind these are rumors and are not confirmed. Conflicting dates are happening, as expected, so several cities may be listed more than once. They are now ordered from the earliest possible date to the latest. ??/?? means a date is unknown but the city has been thrown out there.
Keep in mind a lot of these may be wrong, for some reason Springsteen fans like to post fake dates when tour is about to happen so hold your breath until we get an official announcement from Bruce.
01/19: Tour Start (Date, City Unknown)
01/29: Toronto, Ontario
01/31: Newark, NJ
??/??: Baltimore, MD
??/??: Grand Rapids, MI
??/??: Cleveland, OH ("Mid-Tour")
??/??: Philadelphia, PA (End of Feb)
??/??: Chicago, IL (Very Early in Tour)

UPDATE #2 (11/21 at 7:10PM): Stan Goldstein tweeting out: "Fun week of breaking some Bruce Springsteen news. Hearing an E Street tour in arenas from Jan. to March featuring songs from the River box." This confirms our January rumor and we are still hearing January 19th as the tour start, if we hear something different or get any new rumors we will keep you updated.
UPDATE (11/20 at 4:17PM): Look for tour start date of 01/19.
I have heard from TWO very reliable sources confirming that Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will be hitting the road in January. Nothing is official until we hear from Bruce so...STAY TUNED...
There is also a rumor that it will be just the E Street Band plus Jake Clemons (not entire horn section)...not sure if that will change.
Update: It is now reported by "people in the know" on BTX (luckytwn in particular) that this may be instead to promote an upcoming tour. Therefore, a tour announcement may happen in December and not the actual tour start. Heck, I'll still take a tour announcement!
Uh...yeah. So, an E Street Band tour could be starting next month in December according to a recent post from blogness and Stan Goldstein. The Saturday Night Live gig is now confirmed by NBC to take place on December 19th and according to Stan Goldstein, that may not be a one and done show. In fact, it may be the start of the next E Street Band tour. Talk about no notice, we are a month away from the SNL appearance! But you won't see this guy complaining...save those pennies!
I have also had two separate contacts say that they have heard January dates but were unsure how reliable that information was. Well, it looks like it is surprisingly happening!
According to a German source I spoke with, The River box set should be announced very soon. However, they provided a little more detailed information that gives us an insight of what the box set may contain. They stated that the box should have about 20-25 outtakes and alternative versions of songs that were on the original The River record. There will also be a DVD/Blu-Ray included of a classic early River show. We should find out more in the next couple of days/weeks as an announcement is usually expected in late September so we could be only a few days away from finding out if this rumor is true or not! We will update this post if we get anything else! Stay tuned.
Just passing along this BTX (posted by Brucefan92) rumor, you can chose to believe it or not as always. Hopefully it is true and it most likely has some merit to it as I still think we will get some sort of tour next year. MSG stands for Madison Square Garden, in New York City, for those who may not know.
"I don't usually post about rumors (mainly cause I don't usually hear about them), but heard one about Bruce yesterday that I figured I would. Friend of mine who works at MSG says he heard a couple dates are being booked for the venue for next spring (he guessed either March or April-ish) and that management is trying to finalize a week or so that the venue might be open. He's told me about these in the past and has usually been pretty reliable. He knows I'm a fan, so going back to probably the Seeger Sessions tour he's always given me a heads up several months in advance around when dates were being booked.
Do what you want with that information. Sounded similar to when he told me about Wrecking Ball and WOAD dates, which were those barnstorming couple dates at each venue shows for the first leg of a tour. My friend didn't know anything about an album, but then again thats not his department so I wouldn't expect him to. Sounds like he could be gearing up for a new tour next spring which sounded believable and that MSG is being scouted as a stop. Take the info however you'd like."
I have always said that we always post rumors no matter what so fans can make up their minds. A few people in the know over on BTX have spoken over the past few months and I just wanted to do a recap since it has been recently talked about on the fan board. It does appear that we are getting a River Box this upcoming holiday season. This was recently said by Stan Goldstein and I happen to agree with this rumor. This rumor of a River Box also recently appeared in a Billboard Article.
As I posted way back in January, I always believed that there would be no formal tour this year and that the band would continue their break and come back with their batteries fully charged, especially after a Spring 2015 tour was scrapped. And after seeing them a couple days ago on The Daily Show, they are looking pretty well rested and tight. As for the next steps, I think we will see an album early next year (Feb-March) with a tour to follow (pending that the band is healthy and ready to go). Again, a couple nights ago they looked great and ready to go now! So keep those fingers crossed that these current plans stay in place. With the recent solo album and tour rumors floating around I thought it would be appropriate to write up this post and give you potential info that is going around by people who would be in the know.
Okay, just remember these are just rumors and I post them for you to make up your own mind if you believe them or not. So...a BTX poster named phillipboyle has been pretty adamant about a solo album being released in the coming months. Now, they say that there will be a new album announcement at the end of August and will be released around early October. Now I can say with confidence that a recent new album has been completed and this is coming from multiple reliable personal sources. And with the photos of Ron Aniello mixing a Springsteen project and Rob Mathes called in to do some work, it does appear that we should be getting a new album sometime soon. How soon? That's the golden question but I still have a gut feeling it will be in 2016. Take our poll and drop a comment on what you think is going to happen next!
A poster on BTX started a new thread that stated that it is possible that Springsteen could play Circus Maximus, which is just a field now, in Rome next year. This is the first rumor of a possible European tour in a while! Springsteen last played Europe in 2013 so a return in 2016 would probably have some big demands. Plus, with the new album rumored to be completed and with that twitter pic of producer Ron Aniello working on some Bruce stuff, it sounds like it could be a very busy 2016 for The Boss. As always, you can discuss what you're thoughts our by visiting our forum!
Well, last month I was told by two different sources that the new Springsteen album was in the mixing stage and now this twitter post and picture seems to confirm this. @RaddSoudani posted the picture below and wrote: "Sitting in on a session for Bruce Springsteen with Ron Aniello. Grammy nominated producer. He's super dope." Let's talk about this rumor by visiting our forum page! Make sure you sign up so you can get involved with the conversation!
Twitter user @KevinDrago11 sent us a tweet yesterday stating that the next download will be a Los Angeles 1988 show. Here was the tweet they sent us: "Next up is LA 1988. You can write it down with Permanent Marker." Sounds pretty confident to me! Although, it was not made clear which show it will be from the tour as Springsteen had several LA performances in 1988. Here is to hoping we hear officially soon!
