Winnipeg not in Boss’s travel plans
NEW YORK — Bruce Springsteen will kick off a nine-week U.S. tour next year.
On Friday, the 66-year-old icon announced he and the E Street Band will hit the road on The River Tour beginning Jan. 16 in Pittsburgh. Springsteen will play 24 dates and wrap the tour on March 17 in Los Angeles.
The lone Canadian date is at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on Feb. 2. The closest the Boss will get to Winnipeg is a Feb. 29 date at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn. Tickets go on sale Dec. 11. Friday’s announcement was made the day he released the four-disc The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, which includes unreleased songs, the original 1980 The River album and more.
Springsteen will perform on Saturday Night Live on Dec. 19.
As usual, the MTS Centre is not on the itinerary of Bruce Springsteen’s upcoming tour.
