Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will definitely be back on the world's stages, in 2012, though details of Springsteen's next album haven't been finalized yet.

Springsteen posted the following message on his web site, brucespringsteen.net, at 9 p.m. today:

"Well, things are starting to heat up down on E Street.

A lot of you have been hearing that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be on tour in 2012. That is absolutely correct. The European dates run from the middle of May until end of July and are being announced this week. Info on the US dates and the World tour dates will coming up shortly.

In addition, we want you to know that the music is almost done (but still untitled), we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet), and that we are all incredibly excited about everything that we're planning for 2012. That's all the info we have for right now, but we'll get back to you--real soon."

Springsteen, 62, has not toured since his Working on a Dream Tour ended in November 2009. He stated at the time that he was planning to take a long break before hitting the road again, and the death, in June of this year, of E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons undoubtedly delayed the completion of a new album album and the beginning of the new tour even more.

The last similarly long break between Springsteen tours came between the end of the tour to promote his "Human Touch" and "Lucky Town albums, in June 1993, and the start of his Ghost of Tom Joad Tour, in November 1995.

The big question looming over the tour, of course, is what it will be like without Clemons' huge presence, both as a musician and as an irreplaceable component of the E Street Band stage show.

I'm interested to see what the album's going to turn out being; according to Nils Lofgren, he hadn't even played on it, at least according to a recent interview he gave. Maybe that's changed, but it may not be a typical E Street album, even if the tour is that band.

i wouldn't be surprised if it's something a little left of center. his last two records were "typical' e-street.

It's been said before, but I really would love for him to put out a punkier/more garage type record. He's got a guitar style made for it, but he's never really gone out with a rock setup. Take Steve, Gary, Max and Roy out for a tour and rip it up.

That might work better. I mean, I wouldn't say Working on a Dream was anything to write home about.

yeah it didn't really have anything as classic and memorable as Livin' In The Future or Girls In Their Summer Clothes.

As much as I love the Rising, 9/11 killed what would've been an absolutely MONSTER Bruce album.

All of the songs that got debuted on the Reunion tour were stone cold killers (except American Skin).

Land of Hope and Dreams
American Skin
Another Thin Line
Code of Silence
Further On (Up the Road)

Would've been an unreal Darkness like album

Very curious to see how the trajectory of the band would've changed

Hm, never heard those middle two (Code of Silence and Another Thin Line).

I wouldn't call American Skin a favorite Springsteen song of mine, but it's pretty remarkable what he was able to do. I was in NYC when it first premiered, and the whole controversy around it was pretty ridiculous, making front page news.

A live version of Code of Silence (from Shea 03) is on The Essential Bruce Springsteen. That should be easy enough to track down. Another Thin Line was also played at Shea (and MSG in 00) and a handful of other shows (most likely in Pittsburgh with Grushecky). Both are fantastic songs.

I've never heard Another Thin Line either, but I think Land of Hope and Dreams is one of the very best songs he's written in the past 10-12 years and it's criminal that it never made an album.

I actully like American Skin quite a bit too.

Agreed that Workin' on A Dream was nothing special. Isn't it well known that those are basically the B-Sides from Magic?
