While fans had expected a full E Street Band tour, the ongoing pandemic has made Springsteen-scale tour difficult — despite the “reopening” across the U.S. and hundreds of concerts and festivals back on the books for late summer and fall, full-scale tours by arena-level artists will be the last to return.
A tour by Springsteen with the E Street Band seemed all but confirmed in the fall of 2019. “I got to get the band together in the studio, which hopefully we’ll do before the year is out, and you start to make some music and we see what we have, and when we have something we look for places to play that music, and that’s how an E Street Band tour is put together,” Springsteen to USA Today at the time.
However, early last year, bandmembers told the Asbury Park Press that a tour that year was uncertain — and the pandemic soon ruled out any possibility. Last month, guitarist Steven Van Zandt told the “Talking Sopranos” podcast that 2022 seemed likely. “I think probably 2022. That’s what it feels like right now. 2021 is still a little up in the air with this new South African variant. It’s a little hard to predict what the hell is going to happen here. So I think 2022, I hope, is a safer bet.”
