Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band have announced European dates for a 2023 international tour, their first shows in six years.

According to a press release, the band’s first shows together since their 2017 anniversary tour for ‘The River’ will begin next spring in North America with a run of to-be-announced arena shows.

Springsteen and co. are then heading to Europe for a series of stadium shows, announced today, with UK and Belgium dates set to be announced soon.

“After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year,” Springsteen said in a statement. “And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there, next year — and beyond.”

The European dates begin in late April 2023 with a gig in Barcelona, before the band then roll on to Dublin for a pair of gigs at the RDS Arena.

Last December, 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.
