Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band Going Down Under

Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band will be heading "Down Under" early next year as the band has announced a tour of Australia and New Zealand.

The tour will be kicking off on February 7th with group's very first concert in Perth. The tour also features the group's first concert in Adelaide and their first concert in New Zealand in over a decade when they close out the tour on March 1st in Auckland.

The new shows follow the Wrecking Ball tour's visit to Australia earlier this year where the band performed shows that run for over three hours in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Victoria's Hanging Rock.

Jon Landau explains why the band decided to go back, "Our shows in Australia earlier this year were among the very best and most satisfying of our whole 128 show tour.

"The crowds were tremendous, the fans as warm, friendly, and welcoming as we could ever hope for, and the quality of the performances, as virtually every reviewer commented, were spectacularly high.

"From the moment we finished the second show at Hanging Rock on March 31, we have been working on a plan to return next year. Among other things, we wanted to expand the number of places we play to include the Hunter Valley, Perth and Adelaide, with a trip to Auckland, as well. Those venues are in addition to the new dates in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

"In other words, this will be our most far reaching tour of Australasia ever - and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are planning to make it their finest."
