Bruce Springsteen has announced 19 dates for a spring 2012 tour with the E Street Band. Tickets for most shows go on sale this Friday (Jan. 27), the first show is scheduled in Atlanta on March 18th.

Rolling Stone is reporting that all the former members of the E-Street Band will be joinng the Boss for the tour.  So far, no word is forthcoming on who will replace Springsteens iconical  saxman Clarence Clemmons who past away last year.

After the final U.S concert dates, Springsteen will take the show across the pond for a European tour before returning to the us to play  the New Orleans Jazz Fest and speak at South by Southwest in Autsin.

Last week, Springsteen announced that his 17th studio album ‘Wrecking Ball‘ will be in stores on March 6. The lead single is ‘We Take Care of Our Own,’ released last week as well. The album will apparently feature at least four songs that have been performed at previous Springsteen concerts, including ‘Land of Hope and Dreams,’ which a lot of people on our staff are very excited about.
