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.
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!
According to Stan Goldstien, he is hearing that The River box set will be out later this year. We have heard for a few months now that a box set would indeed be out later this year and the recent Sony contract leak also says to expect one. So this isn't going to far off the deep end in terms of predictions but, any rumor is a good rumor!
Here is a great way to start out the weekend. I heard that Bruce Springsteen has finished recording his new album and it is now in the mixing stage. The best part of it all was that I was told it would be released this summer! It seems unprecedented for Springsteen to release a new album without a few months notice but after all, he is The Boss. As for what the album consists of, I was told it was very different from what Springsteen has put out before. So with my grain of salt, here is to hoping that this particular rumor is true!
@colemichael167 on Twitter gave me a heads up earlier this morning that the Born In The USA box set would be announced this Monday. We know for sure that it will be coming out some time this year thanks to the Sony contract leak. @DJRichRusso also posted a teaser saying that a big announcement will be coming Monday afternoon. So keep your fingers crossed that this rumor is true!
UPDATE: @colemichael167 has said that another source thinks The River box set could be announced tomorrow. The Sony contract leak says that it should be Born in the USA however, that is not a set in stone schedule, just an anticipated time frame.
UPDATE #2: Rich Russo's announcement was just being about a DJ on the Underground Garage. Looks like we will have to wait until November to see a box set.
This rumor does come from BTX so take it with a grain of salt but it is said that Bruce has a solo acoustic record ready. Here was the original post "There is a finished acoustic album - a friend at Sony has heard two tracks which he described as classic. Guitar player Matthew Coma comes on it." Matt Coma was the man behind producing the modern version of Rocky Ground. Who knows if it will have the same feel to it if this particular rumor turns out to be true. It would for sure be interesting since it sounds like it is just Bruce and the guitar and/or the piano since the original rumor says "acoustic album." Things have been dead quiet so I just wanted to post for you to come up with your own thoughts. Hope to have more rumors on the horizon soon!

A very good personal source of mine has informed me that the Japan planning has now stopped. In fact, they said (as we figured) that there is nothing planned as of right now and Bruce will continue to take a break. We did figure this was the case but I have 100% trust in this source, so they pretty much confirmed nothing is in the works at this moment. Just wanted to pass along this info to our readers.
I personally believe that this means that they are going back to the drawing board in terms of tour planning. Which, could take a long time to move around dates and really plan an entirely new tour. They may of had a back-up plan to the original tour which we now know was suppose to take place this upcoming Spring. Only time will tell.
