Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band to launch US, European tour

Bruce and the road - they go together

As we expected, Bruce Springsteen's appearance this weekend Super Bowl XLIII is just the beginning: Today it was announced that Bruce and The E Street Band will launch a 47-date US and European tour, beginning 1 April in San Jose, California and wrapping 2 August in Santiago, Spain.

And for anybody who might think demand for The Boss might have waned, think again: demand for tickets has already crashed computer systems in Stockholm, Sweden and Bergen, Norway.

It's all part of what is shaping up to be a stunning year for Bruce, having just released his finest album in years, Working On A Dream, hot on the heels of winning a Golden Globe Award for the title song to the film The Wrestler, which appears as a bonus cut on the CD. (By the way, if you haven't caught The Wrestler yet, do so - brutal, artful filmmaking.)

In the meantime, check out the video for the song My Lucky Day.
