Bruce Springsteen has released a video for "Death to My Hometown," and announced dates for an eight-city stadium tour for August and September. The tour kicks off August 18th at Boston's Gillette Stadium and wraps up after a three-night stand at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium on September 22nd. Tickets go on sale later this month.
The Wrecking Ball tour formally kicked off March 18th in Atlanta. "Generally speaking, in the first half of the tour we usually emphasize the new album," E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt recently told Rolling Stone. "The second half of the tour tends to loosen up a bit, get a little bit more spontaneous, a little bit crazier." The group wraps up the first leg of the tour May 2nd in Newark before heading to Europe for most of the summer.
The new video for "Death to My Hometown" features live performances of the song (featuring Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello) taped at New York's Apollo Theater, South By Southwest and the tour kick-off in Atlanta. It is the second video released from Wrecking Ball, following "We Take Care Of Our Own."
