Bruce Springsteen And E Street Band Extend Wrecking Ball Tour Into 2014

Earlier this month Bruce Springsteen fans here in the States were very disappointed when a handful of South American dates were announced as the “The Final 2013 Wrecking Ball Dates.” Some looked too far into it and thought the South American dates were the end for the long-running tour which started in March 2012. However, it appears the key word was “2013” as The Boss has just announced an early 2014 swing through Australia and New Zealand.

We now have hope that Springsteen and his long-time band will indeed bring The Wrecking Ball Tour back to America. But first things first -Bruce’s 2014 tour of Australia and New Zealand marks his biggest in the area to date. The Boss played the area earlier this year, delivering a slew of instant classic shows. Said Springsteen’s long-time manager and producer, Jon Landau in a statement, “Our shows in Australia earlier this year were among the very best and most satisfying of our whole 128 show tour. The crowds were tremendous, the fans as warm, friendly, and welcoming as we could ever hope for, and the quality of the performances, as virtually every reviewer commented, were spectacularly high.

“From the moment we finished the second show at Hanging Rock on March 31, we have been working on a plan to return next year. Among other things, we wanted to expand the number of places we play to include the Hunter Valley, Perth and Adelaide, with a trip to Auckland, as well. Those venues are in addition to the new dates in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. In other words, this will be our most far reaching tour of Australasia ever – and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are planning to make it their finest.”
