Springsteen hits the road

Boss and E Street Band set 'Magic' tour

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are hitting the road.

On Oct. 2, the same night Springsteen’s new album “Magic” hits the shelves, the band will open up a 31-night tour in Hartford, Conn. They’ll play 16 North American cities and then travel to Europe for 13 shows.

Tour comes to Los Angeles on Oct. 28, though a venue has yet to been determined. On his first visit to town on “The Rising” tour, Springsteen played the Forum. He opened the Staples Center in 1999 and, with his Seeger Sessions Band, played the Greek Theater last year.

It was believed he would play the Forum on this tour, but Cirque du Soleil’s “Corteo” may potentially extend its stay in the venue’s parking lot through Oct. 28. “Corteo” is only selling tickets through Oct. 14, but the company’s website indicates they will extend through Oct. 28.

Springsteen will play two shows at Madison Square Garden in New York on Oct. 17-18 and end the tour on Dec. 19 in London.

With overall concert revenue nearly on par this year with 2006, the highly anticipated Springsteen tour will certainly help drive 2007 ticket sales and could bump it over last year’s totals.

Springsteen told Backstreets magazine that he anticipates the new album sounding best when played live.

“It’s just built for it,” he said. “I wrote with a lot of melody, and with a lot of hooks, and there’s a lot of band power behind the stuff that I wrote this time out. So I’m excited to hear that come straight off the band.”
