Tom Morello will sit in on guitar with Bruce Springsteen on the upcoming Australian leg of his Wrecking Ball tour while Steven Van Zandt finishes filming for his television show Lilyhammer. Van Zandt will be back with the band on April 29th when Springsteen and company play Oslo, Norway.

Morello is no stranger to playing with Bruce. The former Rage Against the Machine guitarist played on a few Wrecking Ball cuts ("Jack of All Trades," "This Depression"), and has joined Springsteen and the E Street Band on multiple occasions, including Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, last year at SXSW and the 25th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame celebration in 2010.

In the past, Morello and Springsteen have teamed up for live
renditions of "The Ghost of Tom Joad," which Rage recorded on their 2000 covers album Renegades. Morello is also set to perform before the Grammys at the MusiCares benefit, which will honor Springsteen this year.
