Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have announced a run of European stadium shows. The tour is scheduled to kick off at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona on April 28, 2023, and climax at the Monza Racing Circuit in Italy on July 25.

More dates are to be announced in The UK and in Belgium, and the European dates will be preceded by a string of as-yet-unannounced US arena dates.

"After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year," says Springsteen. "And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there, next year – and beyond."

The dates will be the first for the E Street Band since the 14-month tour celebrating 1980 album The River concluded in Australia in February 2017. The touring line-up will include longstanding band members Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa, Garry Tallent, Max Weinberg and Stevie Van Zandt, alongside Soozie Tyrell, Jake Clemons and Charlie Giordano.
