Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band have extended their North American tour this fall with 16 additional dates, including a performance Oct. 25 at XL Center in Hartford. Tickets go on sale Aug. 10 via www.ticketmaster.com, though there’s no word yet on price.
It’s been a busy year for the Boss, who released a scathing new album, “Wrecking Ball,” in March. He gave the keynote address at this year’s South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, a couple weeks later, and he’s been drawing rapturous reviews in Europe for epic concerts. Springsteen is also the subject of a lengthy, revealing profile in the latest issue of The New Yorker.
“Wrecking Ball” is Springsteen’s 17th studio album, and his 10th album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
