Bruce Springsteen has revealed that he has a new project in the works, which is what led to him wanting to book the upcoming The River Tour to play shows with the E Street Band.
“The project I’ve been working on is more of a solo project,” he says. “It wasn’t a project I was going to probably take the band out on. So I said, ‘Gee, that’s going to push the band playing again until a ways in the future. It’ll be nice to get some playing in so you don’t wind up being two or three years between E Street tours.’ This will give us a chance to get out there and stretch our muscles a little bit.”
