2016 is shaping up to be a very busy year for Bruce Springsteen. In addition to the 24 date tour he and the E Street Band will mount marking the anniversary of The River album (story), Bruce will be working on a solo album and developing solo tour plans to follow its release. Speaking with E Street Radio, The Boss said the first tour will feature a stripped down E Street Band with just its core members instead of the one supplemented with so many extra musicians and background vocalists he ran with during the last tour. He also let slip that the decision to mount a tour featuring tracks from the 1980 double album morphed from an initial plan to just do one or two concerts around the date of the expanded edition reissue of The River.
