Springsteen Adding Tour Dates; U.S. to Follow?

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band have just added three new South American dates to their previously announced Rock In Rio performance next month in Brazil. As it stands now, “The Boss” will hit a total of four major cities — Santiago, Chile; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. The additional dates are whetting the appetite for North American fans who since the band’s 1999-2000 reunion jaunt, have always gotten at least one last string of shows before the wrap of a major tour. Springsteen and the band launched the current Wrecking Ball tour on March 9th, 2012 with a warm-up gig at New York City’s legendary Apollo Theater.

Once again Springsteen’s shows have taken on the added bonus of numerous fan requests, which seem to become a regular addition to the band’s stadium legs. Springsteen shed some light on the ritual that any other touring ensemble would probably loathe to undertake as a nightly occurrence, telling Rolling Stone that the evening’s setlist is strictly a formality, “It’s purely something to make the band feel like they know what’s going to happen. They also know it’s not worth the paper it’s printed on. . . . In truth, I don’t look at it very much during the night. I’m listening to the song that we’re playing — it’s talking to me about what to play next. And I’m watching the audience.”
