The Boss is coming back to Australia in 2014, according to Triple M, who appear to have made a bit of a faux pas with an early announcement of a second trip Down Under by the one and only Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band as a part of his mammoth Wrecking Ball world tour.
Triple M posted the details of the 63-year-old’s return trip to Oz on their website, showing a gig in Perth on 7th February and then stops in all the major capital cities. The post also announced the newly reformed Aussie rock icons Hunters & Collectors as the support act for the tour.
It was taken down quick smart but some fast Springsteen fans got a screenshot (below) and posted them in a fan forum.
The Boss was last in town back in March, so if part two of the tour is the real deal, he obviously enjoyed himself.
As you can see in the below details, there’s plenty of room in between dates for more shows, and since rumours have been circulating since Brucie’s last Australian trip that his next tour would be a 10-show affair we can more than likely look forward to extra shows as well.
Apparently tickets will be on sale to the general public on Monday, 26th August, with a presale kicking off on Wednesday, 21st August.
