Said long-time manager Jon Landau, “Bruce has dug down as deep as he can to come up with this vision of modern life. The lyrics tell a story you can’t hear anywhere else and the music is his most innovative of recent years. The writing is some of the best of his career and both veteran fans and those who are new to Bruce will find much to love on ‘Wrecking Ball.'”

While this morning’s press release does not specifically address U.S. tour dates, it does confirm: “Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be touring extensively in the US and Europe in 2012.”
