Since launching The River Tour in January, Springsteen and the E Street Band have gone "legions above and beyond the normal concert experience," according to The Boston Globe, with Herculean sets lasting well past three hours. Even on the final night of the first North American run, "every musician on that stage was finding something more to offer," said NPR, "and almost every performance of every song felt renewed."
The next slate of U.S. concerts follows 37 initial North American dates, as well as an 11-week European trek. The European dates begin May 14 in Barcelona, Spain, and include appearances at Italy's Rock in Rome and Portugal's Rock in Rio Lisboa.
The E Street Band's members are: Roy Bittan - piano, synthesizer; Nils Lofgren - guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa - guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent - bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt - guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg - drums; with Soozie Tyrell - violin, guitar, vocals; Charlie Giordano - keyboards; and Jake Clemons - saxophone.
