In einem Interview mit dem australischen TV Sender “Seven Network” gab Bruce Springsteen am Wochenende bekannt, dass er mit der E Street Band ein neues Album einspielen wird. Anschliessend wird der “Boss” auf Tournee gehen und unter anderem auch Shows in Australien bestreiten.

Bruce Springsteen sagte:

I’m gonna record with the band soon. Then — I never know how long the record’s gonna to take, hopefully, it won’t take long — and at some point after that, we’ll start to look around and play again and of course, I always love coming to Australia. It’s become a great, great place for us with a great audience for us there and it’s a joy to come, so hopefully late next year… we’ll be getting out there.”

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band – Summer 2017 Tour

Der Ticketvorverkauf startet bereits am 23. September 2016 auf

Die offizielle Pressemeldung:

Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to Australia and New Zealand.

Last on our shores in 2014 for a sold out run of shows, the summer of 2017 will see Bruce and his legendary band undertake one of their biggest tours here to date, visiting Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Hanging Rock, Hunter Valley, Brisbane, Auckland and – for the very first time – Christchurch.

Sure to be a special and emotive concert for everyone in attendance, Bruce and the E Street Band will perform at Christchurch’s AMI Stadium on the eve of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake anniversary.  In the wake of the devastating earthquake Bruce’s song ‘My City Of Ruins’ became a poignant and inspirational unofficial anthem for the city.

For one month Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be calling Australia and New Zealand home, with nine shows sure to delight fans who have rabidly been monitoring the international movements of The River Tour.  Indeed, those overseas dates have had critics and fans alike in raptures.

  • ‘Springsteen was the consummate, gimmick-free showman.’  – Evening Standard UK (4 stars)
  • ‘Springsteen’s stamina, exuberance and ability to connect remain unrivalled.’ – Guardian UK
  • ‘For all his squillions of record sales, the live arena is where [Springsteen] and his band truly excel.’ – The Telegraph, UK

Named the top global touring act of 2016 by both Billboard and Pollstar, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have sold close to 2 million tickets in 2016 alone.

In further exciting news – and perhaps evidence that no one can say no to Bruce – one of Australia’s most successful rock bands of all time, Jet, will be reforming to hit the road with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, appearing as very special guests at their outdoor concerts in Melbourne, Hanging Rock, Hunter Valley, Christchurch and Auckland.

Jet quickly conquered the world after forming in 2001, selling more than 6.5 million albums globally and securing 10 x Platinum certification in Australia and Platinum in the USA and UK for their debut album Get Born. They produced a string of classic singles in Are You Gonna Be My Girl, Rollover DJ, Look What You’ve Done, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is, Rip It Up, and Seventeen before disbanding in 2012.  The band have turned down numerous requests to reform in the ensuing years… until now!

Guitar legend Diesel will appear as special guest in Hanging Rock and Hunter Valley.  In July Diesel released his 15th career album ‘Americana’, a celebration of some of America’s most legendary music. Fittingly the album includes his interpretation of the classic ‘Born To Run’.

Appearing in Christchurch and Auckland alongside Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and Jet, will be local Kiwi favourite Marlon Williams & the Yarra Benders.  Since releasing his self-titled album at the start of last year, Marlon has toured extensively throughout North America and UK/Europe including spots on some of the world’s leading music festivals.

In Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform the concerts in their entirety, with no special guests.

If the Summer ’17 Tour seems too far away, Springsteen fans can treat themselves to some quality time with Bruce with the release of his autobiography Born To Run (out September 27 through Simon & Schuster) and its audio companion Chapter And Verse (out September 23 through Sony Australia).  Bruce first began working on the autobiography in 2009, after performing at the Super Bowl’s halftime show.  The 500-page autobiography promises a glimpse behind the scenes at the extraordinary life of Bruce Springsteen.  Chapter And Verse features 18 tracks from across Bruce’s career, including 5 previously unreleased songs. / Quelle

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Australien Tour 2017?

Im März 2003 tourte die E Street Band durch Ozeanien und spielte fünf Shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane und Auckland. Die Auftritte der “The Rising Tour 2002/2003” waren schlecht organisiert und wurden zu einem finanziellen Reinfall.

Zehn Jahre später kehrte der “Boss” nach Übersee zurück und bestritt zwischen dem 14. und 31. März 2013 zehn Konzerte in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne und Macedon. Der Tourpromoter Michael Gudinski konnte zu den Shows knapp 155.000 Tickets absetzen.

Auch die 34 Auftritte umfassende “High Hopes Tour 2014” führte Bruce Springsteen und die E Street Band nach Down Under. Die Musiker waren in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Hunter Valley, Brisbane und Auckland zu Gast.

Die Termine:

Zu den Shows wurden im Vorfeld 262.000 Eintrittskarten (100% Auslastung) abgesetzt. Insgesamt durften sich die Veranstalter über Ticketerlöse in Höhe von 38.969.591 Dollar freuen.

Bruce Springsteen – Live in Melbourne 2014

Nun kündigte Michael Gudinski in einem Interview grosse Rock-Konzerte in Melbourne an:

Gudinski told a Melbourne radio station that early next year would see not just a “massive February and March of rock” but “the biggest run of concerts you’ve seen in Melbourne ever”.
Along with talk of Guns n’ Roses, Paul McCartney and Adele coming at that time, the Springsteen rumour was given impetus by Gudinski, who was responding to memories of the now semi-legendary E Street Band show at Hanging Rock in 2013 – which the American loved said Gudinski – revealing that he’d been at some of the European shows on the current E Street Band tour but didn’t want to “break the story”.
“Let me tell you, let me tell you, he finished the tour at Hanging Rock, and um, pretty hard to come to Hanging Rock in early February without doing the rest of Australia so we’ll see what happens in the next few days.” – Quelle

Ausserdem meldet “Tonedeaf” folgendes:

The Boss will reportedly tour Australia in January/February next year, with dates possibly announced later this month.
The tour will be a mix of outdoor and arena shows, including a performance at Victoria’s Hanging Rock. According to Fairfax, there will not be any Perth or Adelaide shows. – Quelle

Die “Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Australia Tour” könnte Ende Januar 2017 starten und im März 2017 enden. Mit einer offiziellen Pressemitteilung ist in den kommenden Wochen zu rechnen.
