Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band: New album & tour in 2012

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will be back in 2012.

The Boss’ official website confirms that a new album and tour are on the schedule for next year.

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.

As for a new album, the site also announces that “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 material and tour will be the first E Street Band projects following the passing of saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who died on June 18 in Florida of complications from a stroke he had a week earlier; Clarence was 69.
