Bruce Springsteen announces a Texas date

Posted 12:02pm on Monday, Feb. 10, 2014

Bruce Springsteen is coming back to America.

The music icon announced a new set of U.S. tour dates Monday after finishing recent treks in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Springsteen and the E Street Band will kick off the 15-date tour on April 8 in Cincinnati and it hits Texas on May 6 with a Houston show at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. His new tour concentrates on the South with stops in Nashville, New Orleans, Atlanta, Raleigh, Charlotte, Virginia Beach, Tampa, and Sunrise, FL (near Fort Lauderdale) as well as Pittsburgh, Columbus, Albany, and Hershey, Penn.

As of now, Springsteen’s schedule is open May 4-5 and the week following his Houston show so, in theory at least, North Texas and/or Austin shows could be added.

Tickets go on sale at various times this month, with the earliest date being Friday. The tour wraps May 18 after two consecutive nights at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn.

Springsteen’s latest album, High Hopes, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart last month. For more information, go here.
