He’s known for giving his all, every single night, of every single tour. So, in great news for fans, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
announced a 2016 North American tour in support of the band’s newly-issued 7-disc box set, which will be released to mark the 35th anniversary of the 1980 double-album.
Springsteen and the boys will embark on a nine-week run of shows to promote the box set. The tour kicks off on January 16th in Pittsburgh, PA and ends with two dates in Los Angeles in mid-March.
In a fantastic move by the band and Bruce, each night of the tour will be recorded, mixed and mastered for release on Live.BruceSpringsteen.net as high-quality downloads and CDs. Each gig will be available to purchase within days of its performance.
The box set called, The Ties That Bind: The River Collection includes the original record alongside The River: Single Album – originally named The Ties That Bind – a 10-track album that Springsteen recorded in 1979 as a follow up to 1978’s Darkness On The Edge Of Town, but never released.
The comprehensive 4CD/3DVD package will also include 22 outtakes from the recording studio sessions as well as an hour-long documentary/interview with Bruce, plus, a 1980 concert of the band that was filmed at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.
The River was a landmark album for Springsteen, and earned him his first No. 1 US album on the Billboard 100.
