Springsteen, on E Street Radio, promises "a full-tilt rock 'n' roll show" in 2023

Bruce Springsteen appeared with host Jim Rotolo on E Street Radio Tuesday to promise "a full-tilt rock 'n' roll show" when he hits the road with the E Street Band next year.


"I’m just aching to play," Springsteen told Rotolo. "Not just play but to travel and see our fans in all those distant cities."


While Springsteen confirmed that U.S. arena dates will begin in February, no specific dates or venues were revealed during the segment, beyond the European dates already announced.


He did break some news, though, promising the tour will eventually hit Australia and New Zealand before going “back around again” (!).


He also promised a "significant amount" of recent material in his setlists: "The show should feel contemporary and also make you feel at home at the same time," he said.


Don't count on much from "Western Stars," though — Bruce said he wants to "keep it a rock show, basically," but added, "Something may squeak in there from that record — it’s not impossible."
