Steve Van Zandt Unsure About Bruce Springsteen's Tour Plans

(Gibson) Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band wrap up their tour in support of last year's Wrecking Ball with two shows in Ireland at the end of July. Aside from a festival gig in South America in September, no more dates have been scheduled.

Rolling Stone asked E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt if the Boss has any more tour dates lined up: "I really, really don't know," said Van Zandt. "I know that Bruce is off in August. But what happens in October-November, I don't know. I really don't. I would tell you, but I don't know. It's possible we've passed the point where it's even possible now. I'd always heard that the tour was ending in September. I've heard that for the last year and a half. Then you start hearing rumors on the street. Half the time they're true, so I never know."

If the touring behind Wrecking Ball is indeed done, it's more likely that Bruce will start working on a new album. Bruce did record with the E Street Band earlier this year while they were on tour in Australia.

Finally, Van Zandt said: "I've been saying this for 40 years, certainly since Darkness on the Edge of Town, but he literally always has an album in his pocket. He usually has two of them." more on this story
