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.
Take this one with a grain of salt but an Ireland radio station (98FM) says that they have been told that Springsteen will be playing Croke Park this upcoming summer. While it is good to hear that a radio station was given this information, I'm doubtful it will happen. But nonetheless, it is a new rumor and we love them here! ClICK HERE TO VISIT RADIO STATION POST!
UPDATE: There is for sure more smoke today. There are several newspaper articles and national radio announcements that have been going around saying that The Boss is indeed coming for 2 shows this summer. On the Springsteen forum, GreasyLake, one poster put that it also appeared on television as a news banner. I will provide some more articles below for you to check out for yourself. Honestly, I am still doubting this rumor but it has increased in probability since yesterday with many more people and outlets saying it will happen. It is said that if true, the shows will be announced on Friday.
UPDATE #2: Andy Greene stated on Twitter that Springsteen will not perform at the show in Ireland this summer.
UPDATE #3: Bruce's Ireland promoter confirmed that Springsteen will not be playing in Ireland this summer. Source
My feelings have really done a complete 180 recently and I am not basing this opinion off of rumors or information. I still had hope for something in the summer or the fall of 2015 for Bruce and the E Street Band to hit the road. That feeling has now turned to doubt. I am by no means an insider, I am just a fan who started this blog as a hobby and it really has turned into a community. But, my gut is just saying that Bruce wants to take 2015 off. It seemed quite obvious that they had some sort of tour planned for the spring but, unfortunately those plans got pulled for whatever reason.
When you really think about it, he and the band have been on tour for the past three years. I think he realizes that maybe it may be a good time to take a break and recharge his batteries and gear up for one hell of a 2016 tour. This could turn out to be a good thing if he decides to wait until 2016. If he does wait, he would have had more than a year to rest which could mean a longer and larger tour. We, as Bruce fans, know when the band gets hot and warmed up they tend to take their shows to the next level. It was a real shame to see them cut off the High Hopes tour in May of last year. The band was really heating up and playing songs that they never had dare play before (Seven Angels for example). Either way, I will continue to post rumors if they come afloat of a 2015 tour. However, my gut right now is saying that we will have an amazing tour in 2016. Albeit, I would not be unhappy if The Boss hits the road sooner rather than later.
