Bruce Springsteen promised fans that the E Street Band would be out on the road in 2022. During his October 17th appearance with Steve Van Zandt at Asbury Park, New Jersey’s Asbury Lanes Between the Lines event benefiting the TeachRock school curriculum, “The Boss” stated: “We’ll be out there in the world again next year, I hope.

Bruce Springsteen makes no bones about the importance and luxury of performing live for his fans at any given show: “The level of responsibility, to be living in the moment at that time when eight o’clock comes around, or whatever. And I got a real strong desire to do it (laughs) because I’ve gotten so much out of it and it’s meant so much to me and it was really my ‘life rope,’ when I was young, before I was could let other things in my life. Y’know, it kept me afloat.”
