I'm feeling a sense of apathy setting in now! ha! Having just battled cancer these past 3 months and had radical surgery (during which my priorities certainly shifted) I'm now keen to be onwards and u

I just hope he does with this E Street record what he did with Western Stars; write great character-driven songs, widen his comfort zone and give us something memorable and moving.

OR - we'll take indoor shows in the Autumn if it "is" to be this year!!! Ha! All this talk of Bruce getting older (fact!) but he is still 5,6,7 years younger than what's left of The Stones, Beatl

Tom Morello is a beast of a guitar player :ph34r:

Those guitar strings do look like they belong to some sort of beast

Honestly its alnost more tempting to snip these than it is those top knot hair buns you see on young men :lol:

And a heck of a nice person.   My wife met him in Cincinnati, and he couldn't have been nicer.

Well that's actually nice to know:)

Niceness is very underrated

He's fantastic. Was hugely popular in Australia, and rightly so.

Perfect gap between end of European stadium leg and start of US stadium leg.

Wasn’t she riding in events in 2016 also? I believe he was flying in and out to ensure he could support her as much as he could. This won’t determine a tour schedule.

Inclined to see us tour for 4/5 months from sept. A break and then an extensive summer 2021 tour of Europe .This would fit in better with other e streeters touring commitments too.

I didn’t realise any other member of the band currently has any tour plans? Nobody is on the road as far as I’m aware?

It’s entirely possible we’re getting European Arenas, not stadiums, which is not season specific. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s done with long stadium runs.

Why? The 35th anniversary was last year (album released in 1984). I’d assume they’re going to risk it and hold on to the 40th.

2005-Born To Run; 2010-Darkness; 2015-River. And Darkness was the 32th anniversary.

To be fair, it seems the Darkness box was first scheduled for 2008 -30th anniversary just like Born To Run-but was postponed because of other things (first Magic Tour lasting longer than expected when it began in 2007, followed by WOAD album and WOAD Tour).

To be fair, The a Promise wasn’t really billed as a Darkness ‘anniversary’ though, more simply just the ‘story’, so I don’t think you should look 05/10/15 link.

 

its widely known there’s a new album that’s been written (Bruce has said this) and it was (again, Bruce’s words) supposedly being recorded late last year.

You mean Managenent/Promoters/Labels missing out on all those $$$$$$$$ ;)

He’s 70, almost 71 by the time they get back out on the road so I’d seriously consider the possibility of arenas over stadiums; at least for the first leg.

Do you think that it's more strenuous to play stadiums than arenas then?

I think Nils is touring with Neil and Crazy Horse this Summer.
