The Wrecking Ball Tour will continue beyond the European leg that ends in July. The news doesn't come as a surprise, but it's still nice to get confirmation. On August 18 Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band will kick off the new North American leg at Gillette Stadium in Boston, MA, After that the tour takes a swing to Canada with shows in Toronto and Moncton before returning to the eastern half of fhe US with shows in Vernon, NY, Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington DC, and three shows at Giants Stadium's successor, MetLife Stadium.

So far those are all the shows that have been announced, and fans west of the Mississippi have once again reason to be disappointed. Hopefully the announced shows are only the beginning, but no word as of yet.

Three times so far this tour (Izod, MSG, and Prudential), with 4 more to go (Boston, NJ, NJ, NJ, NJ)... I do not take one second for granted!!

While it's not a lot by any fanatics standards...the last show at MetLife (NJ) will be #68.

He has been absolutely outstanding (well, I say that after every show/tour, but this tour he has outdone himself), and I cannot wait!!!!!!!!

If I get to hear Janey Don't You Loose Heart once more, my happiness will know no bounds :)
