Bruce Springsteen announces 2012 UK dates

As expected, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band have announced the first series of dates of their 2012 world tour.

The group’s first tour in three years will play 4 shows in the UK next summer (see list below).

Springsteen’s site says the European dates run from the middle of May until end of July and are being announced this week; info on the US dates and the World tour dates will be coming up shortly.

There’s also new music on the way: “we want you to know that the music is almost done (but still untitled), we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet), and that we are all incredibly excited about everything that we're planning for 2012. That's all the info we have for right now, but we'll get back to you - real soon.”

The 2012 tour will be the first for the band since the passing of saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who died in June of complications from a stroke.
