US rock legend Bruce Springsteen is heading to Norway this summer as he brings his much-anticipated 'The River Tour' to Europe.
Springsteen and his E Street Band are set to perform in Ullevål in Oslo, Norway, on June 29th. He will also play Gothenburg at the Ullevi arena on June 25th and Copenhagen's Parken arena on June 22nd.
The rocker launched his The River Tour, named in honour of the 35-year-anniversary of his legendary 'The River' album, in the US city of Pittsburgh a few weeks ago, his first tour in two years.
Last time Springsteen came to Norway he played two sold-out gigs at Telenor Arena in Oslo three years ago. A year earlier he visited Norway to pay tribute to victims and survivors at a memorial concert held on the anniversary of the Utøya massacre.
Tickets for this summer's gig will be available from 9am on February 25th.
'The River' was Springsteen's fifth studio album, originally released on October 17th 1980. Including famous hits such as 'Hungry Heart', 'Independence Day' and 'The Ties That Bind', it has been ranked as the 253rd greatest album of all time by Rolling Stone magazine.
He is hugely popular in the Nordics, and the love goes both ways. Interviewed back in 2013 he said that he's enjoyed playing Norway since he first visited the country in the 1980s and now views it as “a second home”
E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt is of course also no stranger to Norway, starring as Frank 'The Fixer' Tagliano in the Norwegian mobster comedy 'Lilyhammer'.
