Bruce Springsteen is set to return to the UK and Europe with The E Street Band next summer for a huge summer stadium tour.

The gigs follow a 2023 run that marked the band’s first UK gigs in six years and begin in Cardiff on May 5 next year.

The announcement comes after Springsteen cancelled the remainder of his 2023 tour dates in the US due to a “monster” peptic ulcer, rearranging the gigs for between March and September next year.

The UK and European tour will also take place across that timeframe, taking in gigs in Cardiff, Sunderland, Ireland and beyond, before finishing at London’s Wembley Stadium on July 25.

There’s also a gap in the schedule for next year’s Glastonbury Festival (June 26-30), where Springsteen headlined in 2009 and joined Paul McCartney on the Pyramid Stage in 2022.

Back in 2021, Springsteen became the latest artist to sell off the masters and publishing rights to his entire back catalogue in a hugely lucrative deal.

The Boss struck a $500 million (£377 million) agreement with Sony Music, giving the label total control over his musical life’s work, which encompasses 20 studio albums, more than 300 songs, 7 EPs and 23 live records.
