Is or Isn’t The Boss Touring Next Year
Bruce Springsteen clarified his plans for 2019, saying he would not be touring with the E Street Band next year and would instead be focusing on finishing a handful of recording projects.
“Just a note to quell some of the rumors over here on E Street,” Springsteen said in a statement posted on Twitter. “While we hope to be back with you soon, the E Street Band won’t be touring in 2019. Before I go back to my day job, the year will be consumed with a break after our Broadway run and various recording projects I’ve been working on. We do hope to see you soon, and until then, we have some mighty E Streeters out there regularly performing with their own projects who’d love and deserve your support.”
Springsteen is set to wrap his long-running Broadway show December 15th, while the film version will premiere on Netflix the following day. Not long after Springsteen kicked off the residency in 2016, he gave an interview with Variety in which he teased his next solo record. The rocker’s last album, High Hopes, arrived in 2014, though his last full-length of all new material, Wrecking Ball, was issued in 2012.
