Bruce Springsteen adds Clarence Clemons’ nephew to E Street lineup

Bruce Springsteen has announced the expanded lineup for his Wrecking Ball tour and, among the additions is Clarence Clemons’ nephew, Jake, on saxophone.

Jake has played with the E Street Band before, and shared the stage with other acts like the Swell Season and singer-songwriter Nancy Atlas. Jake performed beside Clarence at Bill Clinton's presidential inauguration in 1992.

Jake joins other additions to the horn section including trombonist Clark Gayton, trumpeters Curt Ramm and Barry Danielian, and saxophonist Eddie Manion; singers Cindy Mizelle and Curtis King are also on board.

Fans will get their first look at the lineup this Sunday at the Grammys.

Springsteen’s new album, “Wrecking Ball,” is set for release on March 6; the first single, "We Take Care Of Our Own," is out now.

Bruce and the E Street gang hit the road March 18 in Atlanta for a 6-week US tour before a summer European tour.
