Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band To Play United Center on The River Tour 1/19/16

Bruce Springsteen brings the E Street Band back to Chicago for the first time since his triumphant Wrigley Shows in 2012.

The United Center visit on January 19th is the second stop on The River tour which spans coast to coast in about two months this winter.  Tickets on sale December 11th.

The announcement of the tour coincides with today’s release of “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection,” a comprehensive look at the era of the 1980 “The River” album that “Rolling Stone” calls “Springsteen’s best archival release yet.”

Each night of the tour will be mixed for release on as high-quality downloads and CDs. Recordings will be available within days of each performance.

The original The River Tour began Oct. 3, 1980, two weeks before the release of Springsteen’s fifth album, and continued through Sept. 4, 1981. With sets that regularly approached the four-hour range, the 140-date international tour firmly established a reputation for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as marathon performers.

Here are the complete tour dates.  More info available at
