Springsteen announces first dates for 2012 tour
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are set to go on the road in 2012.
Mr. Springsteen announced plans to tour the United States and Europe on his official website Sunday, the Associated Press reports.
He also wrote the band is “incredibly excited” about the new year, adding that their new music is “almost done” and “still untitled,” but with an undetermined release date.
They’ll play four shows in England next summer: June 21 in Sunderland, June 22 in Manchester, June 24 at the Isle of Wight festival and July 14 at Hard Rock Calling in London.
The European shows will run from mid-May through the end of July. They’ll also be touring in the United States. That information will be released later.
This will be the first tour for the E Street Band since saxophonist Clarence Clemons died in June from complications of a stroke.
Mr. Springsteen’s last tour was the “Working on a Dream” tour, which ended in 2009.
Bee Gees’ Robin Gibb battling liver cancer
The 61-year-old singer, whose frail appearance has caused concern among Britain’s media, was hospitalized last week after making an emergency call from his house in Thame, southwest England, according to Agence France-Presse.
Mr. Gibb’s twin brother, Maurice, died in 2003 from complications resulting from a twisted intestine, and younger brother Andy died in 1988 following a battle against cocaine addiction.
Older brother and fellow Bee Gee Barry has returned to Britain along with 91-year-old mother Barbara, according to the report.
The British-born brothers scaled the heights of the pop world in the 1970s with disco hits “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever,” and notched more than 200 million record sales during a career that has spanned seven decades.
Mr. Gibb was forced to cancel several appointments last month, including one with British Prime Minister David Cameron, after he was hospitalized with severe stomach pains.
