Tom Morello to join Bruce Springsteen for Australian tour

Bruce Springsteen has announced a temporary lineup change to the E Street Band.

Since Stevie Van Zandt’s filming commitments to his highly successful television show, Lilyhammer, will keep him off stage for the upcoming Australian tour dates, Bruce Springsteen has invited Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello to sit in on guitar.

Following the Australian dates – which run from March 14 to 31 – Van Zandt will return to the tour in Oslo, Norway on April 29.

Morello performed on multiple recordings from “Wrecking Ball” (“Jack of All Trades”, “This Depression”), and recently joined Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band onstage for performances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, at SXSW and for the legendary 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert. He has also joined the band on concert tour stops in NYC, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Morello is also scheduled to perform at the 2013 MusiCares benefit gala honoring Springsteen.
