Last night Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band kicked off the new tour, in support of the release of their critically acclaimed album, The River. And while Bruce and company gave the crowd an unforgettable performance into the late hours of the night, performing at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center, Springsteen also took the time to pay a special tribute to the late great David Bowie. Covering Bowies 1974 record, ‘Rebel Rebel’, The Boss definitely honored Bowie in a special way.

Arguably the best live performers of a generation, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band are hitting the road in 2016, for yet another countrywide tour. In support of their classic 1980 album, The River and today’s reissue of that memorable LP, the guys will kick off “The River Tour” next month in Pittsburgh, and will be on the road for 9-weeks before the tour concludes March 17th at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.
This time around, the tour will be surrounded by even more excitement as each night of The RiverTour will be mixed for release, for HQ downloads and CDs, via Live.BruceSpringsteen.net. Recordings will be available within just days of each performance. The 2016 tour doesn’t only pay homage to the legendary LP, rather it also pays tribute to the original tour of the same name, which ran for almost an entire year in 1980 to 1981. With sets that continually hit near the 4-hour mark, if this tour is even have as great as its prequel, then we’re in for quite the ride!
