Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band will return to the region in June as part of the band’s UK tour.

The River Tour will begin in Manchester at the end of May before heading to Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on June 3.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday, February 25 via www.livenation.co.uk
The tour comes in the wake of the release of The Ties That Bind: The River via Columbia Records. The four disc offering celebrates the 35th anniversary of Springsteen’s 1980 double-disc classic, The River and includes the 22 outtakes from the original The River sessions, half of which had never been previously released.

Speaking on The River Tour in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Bruce Springsteen said: “We stand toe-to-toe with any version of our band that’s been out there.

“It’s a richer experience now because there is so much material to draw from.

“And that shared history you have with people makes the night very full, very beautiful.”

Springsteen played the Coventry venue three year ago, playing Born To Run in its entirety.

Andy Gibb, managing director of the Ricoh Arena, said: “No other artist has played for so long at the Ricoh Arena – particularly without a break – which is testament to his massive catalogue of songs.

“I would encourage fans to buy their tickets as quickly as possible because we don’t want anyone to miss out on another memorable night at the Ricoh Arena.”

Tickets for the Ricoh Arena show cost from £55 plus fees.
