The Boss, The River and The E Street Band

Bruce Springsteen has announced an intriguing new tour kicking off this Winter in Pittsburgh. Two things that make this one special are the fact that this will be a full E Street Band affair, and that the tour is titled The River Tour.

Unfortunately, it’s not yet clear whether that means Springsteen will be playing the double album in its entirety. We can only hope so, as that album is his best and one of the Top 25 ever, according to our own Cretin (read the article here). My guess is that we hear a lot of the music plus a copious amount of outtakes as Springsteen supports The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, which is a 50 song reissue of the 1980 masterpiece.

As a nice bonus, Springsteen will be releasing every concert from the tour on high quality downloads, or CD, through within days of each performance. And, to kick things off, Springsteen will serve perform on the December 19th episode of Saturday Night Live.
