Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are touring next year, but Canada isn’t on their itinerary — at least for now.

Springsteen has announced he will play 31 shows south of the border in Tampa, Fla., beginning February 1, 2023, before ending April 14 in his home state of New Jersey. The group will then travel overseas from April 28 in Spain for a round of stadium shows that will continue into July.

A second round of North American dates – which is expected to include some Canadian shows – will begin next August.

The 2023 performances will mark Springsteen’s first tour since he and the E Street Band completed a 14-month trek to commemorate the 35th anniversary of The river in 2017. After a successful stint on Broadway, The Boss reunited with his longtime bandmates in 2019 with its release Letter to you the following year.

“After six years, I look forward to seeing our amazing and loyal fans again next year. And I look forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there next year — and beyond,” Springsteen said in a statement.

During an appearance on SiriusXM’s E Street Radio in May, Springsteen opened up about his desire to get back on the road.

“It doesn’t feel like that long” since the band last played live, he told host Jim Rotolo. “We’ve been busy at that time but I still have the Joneses to play very poorly live at this point so I’m really looking forward to being out there in front of our fans.”

But in a 2014 interview with usa today, Springsteen, 72, said he realized his time on the road was “final”.

“I think the band will play a lot longer, okay, but not forever like you felt when you were 32,” he said at the time. “You’re playing to an audience that will clearly outlive you now, which is wonderful and bittersweet at the same time…”

Tickets for most US shows go on sale July 17 through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program, which requires fans to register in advance.
