Bruce Springsteen was originally hoping to launch the E Street Band‘s next tour in the spring of 2021.  He now thinks it’s going to be much longer than that.  During a new chat with Rolling Stone, “The Boss” spoke about his upcoming album, Letter To You, which drops on October 23rd — but also touched upon what the road will look like post-Covid.

Springsteen explained, “My antenna tells me, at best, 2022. And I would consider the concert industry lucky if it happens then. . . I’m going to consider myself lucky if I lose just a year of touring life. Once you hit 70, there’s a finite amount of tours and a finite amount of years that you have. And so you lose one or two, that’s not so great. Particularly because I feel the band is capable of playing at the very, very, very top, or better than, of its game right now. And I feel as vital as I’ve ever felt in my life…  It’s not being able to do something that is a fundamental life force, something I’ve lived for since I was 16-years-old.”

But, concerts aren’t gone for good!  Our last socially distance concert, LIVE FROM THE LOT featuring Sixteen Candles was A BLAST.  Check out pics from the show and keep checking our website our next LIVE FROM THE LOT concert.
