Bruce Springsteen

August 2, 2012. The following has been excerpted and edited from a note by George Travis to the Wrecking Ball Tour Crew:

We are heading home with 51 shows behind us; 11 states, 15 countries, 33 stadium shows and festivals and over 1,650,000 people. And now our US/Canadian outdoor stadium run is about to kick-off… This is a note of acknowledgement to all the men and women that are or have been a part of this UK/European leg of our tour.

A huge thank you to the bus and rig drivers, the caterers, the shops and offices of our vendors … you’ve gotten us everywhere on time, while feeding us incredibly delicious food and keeping us afloat. Thank you for being some of the best we’ve ever had!

We are over 100 people working and traveling together on this tour, as well as the hundreds more we deal with in venues from every city we travel to. We are all part of what may be the biggest and best group of musicians traveling on the road today, and we end each night knowing there are a lot of fans going home with memories they’ll talk about for the rest of their lives. So, thank you to Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band and to all the fans who are responsible for us to have this great job. The bar has always been set pretty high and we’re hoping to push it even higher.  Read the full excerpt on brucespringsteen.net


Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band launched 2012 'Wrecking Ball' World Tour on March 18 in Atlanta. Bruce Springsteen's 17th studio album 'Wrecking Ball' was released on Columbia Records on March 6.  New dates on sale Saturday, August 4! CLICK HERE for tickets on Ticketmaster US

 


 

"We Take Care Of Our Own," the album's first single,' is "classic Springsteen" with "anguish and challenge [that] run thick and fast" (Rolling Stone); a "richly orchestrated Wall of Sound... that nods to the 'Born to Run' era" (Billboard).

The E Street Band's members are: Roy Bittan - piano, synthesizer; Nils Lofgren - guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa - guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent - bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt - guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg - drums; with Soozie Tyrell - violin, guitar, vocals and Charlie Giordano - keyboards. For the first E Street Band tour without the Big Man, the band will be augmented by a five-piece horn section, including C’s nephew Jake Clemons and Eddie Manion on saxophones.

Headlines Update: Pete Seeger is 93 years-old but he isn’t slowing down his musical output. In fact, he’s releasing two albums this fall, both scheduled for release on September 25. One album, Pete Remembers Woody, is a two-disc tribute to the late Woody Guthrie. The album includes some covers of Guthrie songs as well as Seeger recalling memories of Guthrie.  Read the full story on CBS Local
