LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have added Louisville to the list of cities on their nine-week US tour.
The River Tour, which launched on Jan. 16 in Pittsburgh, will make a stop in Louisville at KFC Yum! Center on Sunday, Feb. 21.
The announcement of the tour coincides with today's release of "The Ties That Bind: The River Collection," a look at the era of the 1980 "The River" album that "Rolling Stone" calls "Springsteen's best archival release yet.”
The River Tour is the first for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band since the 2014 High Hopes Tour.
The original The River Tour began Oct. 3, 1980, two weeks before the release of Springsteen's fifth album, and continued through Sept. 4, 1981. With sets that regularly approached the four-hour range, the 140-date international tour established a reputation for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as marathon performers.
