Bruce Springsteen will bring his Seeger Sessions band with to Europe for a fall tour in support of their Columbia album "We Shall Overcome." At deadline, the trek is due to begin Oct. 1 in Bologna, Italy, and run through Nov. 21 in Belfast, Ireland.

Springsteen and company just completed an 18-show North American tour. Ten dates reported to Billboard Boxscore grossed $6.5 million and played to nearly 92,000 fans.

On the last three shows, a new song, "American Land," began appearing in the set list as the opener. Although details have yet to be announced, an expanded edition of "We Shall Overcome," subtitled "American Land," is due Sept. 5 via Columbia. Springsteen told CNN last month that the new version would include "Bring 'Em Home," which was a constant during the tour's encore.

In related news, Springsteen guests on three songs from longtime cohort Joe Grushecky's new album, "A Good Life," due Aug. 15. Among them is "Code of Silence," a Grushecky/Springsteen co-write that was first performed live during the E Street Band's 2000 tour.
