Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 16, 2014
It’s heart-warming news for rock and roll fans across America, who are currently chilling out in an icy winter wonderland with snow in 49 states across the continent: The Boss is back.
Tickets were just released to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s first U.S. tour since 2012. While The Boss is currently down under playing gigs in Adelaide, South Australia and Pokolbin, New South Wales – his 15-date U.S. High Hopes tour opens at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio on April 8, 2014.
From there, the tour travels to Virginia Beach, Columbus, Nashville, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Atlanta, Sunrise, Tampa, New Orleans, Spring, Albany, and Hershey – with a two-date wrap at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on May 17 and 18, 2014.
“To date, the group has not announced any concerts in their typical stops in New Jersey and the west coast, but fans in many other markets will get their long-awaited visit from the singer/songwriter and his award-winning band,” said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com.

Born Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen in Long Branch, New Jersey on September 23, 1949, the artist is known for his poetic lyrics on the working class – and his energetic stage performances with concerts often running up to 250 minutes in length. His most successful studio albums, Born in the U.S.A. and Born to Run, cover the value of finding grandeur in the struggles of daily American life.
Springsteen was inspired to take up music at age seven after seeing Elvis Presley on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1956. At 13, his mother bought him his first guitar for $18. The next year, in 1964, another major inspiration appeared with the Beatles' first shot on The Ed Sullivan Show. After that, the singer began playing for audiences, first at a trailer park and then at a local Elks Lodge in New Jersey. In 1965, his mother took out a loan to buy her 16-year-old son a $60 Kent guitar, an act he later memorialized in his song "The Wish".
Springsteen acquired the nickname "The Boss" in the late 1960s when he played club gigs and took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and then distributing it to his bandmates. While never fond of it due to his dislike of bosses, the artist seems to have accepted his moniker. His previous nickname was "Doctor".
After over a decade of hard work and dedication, Springsteen finally found success with the release of Born to Run in August of 1975. To date, he has sold more than 64 million albums in the United States making him the 15th highest selling American artist of all-time. He has also sold more than 120 million albums worldwide.
Along the way, he has earned 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1999. Last year, he was named Number One on Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Greatest Live Acts list - as he is known for scrapping his set list in favor of performing the fan requests he receives during his lengthy shows.
Springsteen's latest tour is on top of his 18th studio album High Hopes, released last month. It quickly became his 11th Billboard Number One in the United States, placing him third on the all-time list behind only The Beatles and Jay-Z.
