Steven Van Zandt expects Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band to tour in 2022
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will likely hit the road in 2022, according to E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt.
Van Zandt appeared in a new episode of the Talking about the sopranos podcast, hosted by Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa. Asked about the possibility of hitting the road again with the E Street Band, Van Zandt said, “I’m probably thinking 2022. That’s what it feels like right now. 2021 is still a bit in the air with this new South African variant and all that stupid s….
Van Zandt added: “It’s a bit difficult to predict what’s going to happen here. So I think 2022, I hope, is a safer bet. “
Even in September 2020, Springsteen himself had estimated that he would not be returning on tour until 2022. The boss said Rolling stone at that time if it weren’t for the coronavirus pandemic, his tour with the E Street Band in support of their album Letter to you would have started in the spring of 2021.
“My antenna tells me, at best, 2022. And I would consider the concert industry lucky if that happens then… I’m going to consider myself lucky if I lose just a year of touring,” Springsteen said. “Once you hit 70, there is a limited number of tours and a limited number of years you have. And so you lose one or two, it’s not terrible. Mainly because I think the band is capable of playing the very, very, very high, even better than, of their game at the moment. And I feel as vital as I have ever felt in my life.… It is not being able to do something that is a fundamental life force, something that I have lived for since I was 16 years old. .
