Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announced 16 additional dates in the U.S. and Canada - including a stop at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place on Friday, Oct. 19 - for the fall leg of the Wrecking Ball World Tour, which will kick off Aug. 14 at Boston's Fenway Park.
The tour closes out an 11-week European run this week that has included three of the longest shows of Springsteen's career and garnered universal acclaim, being called "gigantic" (Rolling Stone), "thrilling" (The Atlantic) and "the stuff of legend" (Irish Independent). Tickets are currently available for previously announced shows in Moncton, N.B. (Aug. 26); Vernon Downs, N.Y. (Aug. 29); Philadelphia, Pa. (Sept. 3); and East Rutherford, N.J. (Sept. 19).
Springsteen is the subject of a 19-page profile in this week's New Yorker by editor David Remnick. Remnick sheds light on Springsteen's approach to recording and touring in 2012 (http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2012/07/30/120730fa_fact_remnick).
