A pending solo album apparently pushed Bruce Springsteen back on the roadwith the E Street Band in 2016. Seems he didn’t want to go so long without rejoining his long-time compatriots on stage.
“The project I’ve been working on is more of a solo project,” he said, during a visit this morning at SiriusXM Radio. “It wasn’t a project I was going to probably take the band out on. So I said, ‘Gee, that’s going to push the band playing again until a ways in the future. It’ll be nice to get some playing in so you don’t wind up being two or three years between E Street tours.’ This will give us a chance to get out there and stretch our muscles a little bit.”
