Bruce Springsteen set to play first dates in South Africa

10/29/2013

It's not just Bob Dylan who's undertaking a "Never Ending Tour" -- throw Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band on that train too. "The Boss" has just announced his first-ever shows in South Africa, hitting Cape Town's Bellville Velodrome on January 28th and 29th and Johannesburg's FNB Stadium on February 1st. After the South African dates, the band will head Down Under for its 13-date tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Bruce Springsteen told us that he believes his role as an American songwriter extends far beyond the entertainment community in which he works and the country in which he lives: "You're supposed to remain interested in the world. Y'know, my job was always to put you in somebody else's shoes and, and have you walk a while in those shoes, I've said a lot in the past. You're out there, and you feel what's in the air out there, and you feel what's on people's minds. People are looking for ways to have a dialogue about these ideas, about these issues. They're looking for ways to try to get a handle and, and make sense of, of what's happening, you know? And I think that music and film and, and art has a service to perform in, in that fashion."
