Released in 1980, The River
stands as one of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s best, most lyrical albums. Now, the Boss and his long-time backing band have announced The River Tour, a nine-week U.S. trek that commences on January 16 in Pittsburgh. The tour comes to Quicken Loans Arena on Feb. 23.
The announcement of the tour coincides with the release of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection
, a comprehensive reissue of the album that includes 52 tracks and four hours of never-before-seen video on three DVDs. It even includes a coffee-table book of 200 rare or previously unseen photos and memorabilia. Tickets for the show at the Q go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 11, at livenation.com
