Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band: The River Tour 2016

The original River Tour began October 3, 1980, two weeks before the release of Bruce Springsteen's fifth album, and continued through September 14, 1981. With sets that regularly approached the four-hour range, the 140-date international tour firmly established a reputation for Springsteen and the E Street Band as marathon performers.

Thirty-five years later, Springsteen and the E Street Band launched The River Tour 2016, beginning on January 16 in Pittsburgh. The announcement of the tour coincided with the December 4 release of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection. After an initial nine-week run, the tour has expanded to take in additional U.S. cities, a three-month European leg, and a return to the States in late summer.

Each night of the tour will be mixed for release on Live.BruceSpringsteen.net as high-quality downloads and CDs.
