Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will indeed tour behind their new album, "Working on a Dream," with stadium dates announced today for Europe in May, June and July.
So far, 10 shows are confirmed, beginning May 30 at the Pink Pop Festival in Holland. The group will also play June 2 in Tampere, Finland, June 4-5 in Stockholm, June 9-10 in Bergen, Norway, July 2 in Munich, July 3 in Frankfurt, July 5 in Vienna and July 8 in Herning, Denmark. Tickets go on sale Monday (Jan. 26).
Springsteen's reps had been cagey about whether he would tour again this year, on the heels of an extensive run in 2007-2008 in support of the album "Magic." The tour grossed about $232 million worldwide, according to Billboard Boxscore.
The group will headline the Super Bowl XLIII halftime show in Tampa, Fla., on Feb. 1; "Working on a Dream" arrives Jan. 27 from Columbia.
