This past winter, Bruce Springsteen announced he would head out on tour in celebration of the release of an archival box set looking back at The River era in 1979-80. The Ties that Bind: The River Collection was released in December and features the entire original double album, a previously unreleased album, a disc of studio outtakes, a documentary and footage of 24 songs from a show recorded in 1980.

Springsteen will be joined by the E Street Band for a Northeast-heavy late summer tour. The tour kicks off with two homestate at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Aug. 23 and 25. It returns to the Northeast on Sept. 7 at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia followed by Sept. 11 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. The tour comes to an end on Sept. 14 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
