After a 1974 gig, future manager Jon Landau hailed Springsteen as the savior of rock and roll. Bruce Springsteen was finally breaking through into the mainstream after a decade of working through the Asbury Park, NJ scene. His unique style blended the energy of early era rock and roll with the protest singer mentality of the sixties, and brought it into the 70's. 1975's Born to Run produced the hits "Thunder Road," "Jungleland," and the classic title track. Springsteen's concerts were legendary, usually lasting over three hours. Over three decades later, his sets are still marathons, the new albums are still revolutionary, and he is still The Boss.
In 2005 Springsteen released Devils & Dust to critical and popular acclaim. Dust, Bruce's third folk album is a tale of love, loss, and war. In 2006, Bruce dropped We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, a collection of covers of traditional and original songs made famous by Pete Seeger.
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band toured in late 2007 and early 2008 in support of their album "Magic." Springsteen's Magic Tour was another huge success for Bruce and the E Street Band. Bruce Springsteen tickets were among the year's hottest items.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band did not slow down in 2009. Bruce participated in the historic Inauguration event for Barack Obama and performed 'The Rising' and 'This Land is Your Land' with folk legend Pete Seeger. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were also the main attraction at 2009’s Super Bowl Halftime show. Springsteen then hit the road with E Street to support their album, 'Working On a Dream'.
In June 2011, longtime E Street Band saxophonist, Clarence Clemens, passed away. The saxophone was taken over by Clemons’ nephew, Jake Clemons, and Eddie Manion.
The 21-time Grammy Award winner will release his 17th album, Wrecking Ball, on March 6, 2012. He performed his new single, “We Take Care Of Our Own,” at the opening of the 2012 Grammy Awards. Springsteen announced a new tour for the album on January 24, which will kick off March 18, 2012 in Georgia and will continue on throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Bruce Springsteen tickets are now available for this tour.
