Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have an extensive tour planned for 2012 in the U.S. and in Europe. The tour will begin on Mar. 18 in Atlanta, Ga. and end in Helsinki, Finland at the end of July 2012.

The Wrecking Ball World Tour will commemorate Springsteen's 17th studio album Wrecking Ball, which is set for release on Mar. 6 by Columbia Records. The new album will feature eleven new Springsteen songs with two bonus tracks and exclusive artwork and photography.

Bruce has dug down as deep as he can to come up with this vision of modern life. The lyrics tell a story you can't hear anywhere else and the music is his most innovative in recent years. The writing is some of the best of his career and both veteran fans and those who are new to Bruce will find much to love on 'Wrecking Ball,' Springsteen's long-time manager wrote on the site.

The Wrecking Ball World Tour will make stops in 16 cities in the U.S., playing 19 shows total. Springsteen will make his last U.S. stop in Newark, N.J. before making his way to Europe for May, June and July. The New Jersey-born rock star last played in 2006 at Jazz Fest in La.

The E Street Band's members include Roy Bittan on piano, synthesizer; Nils Lofgren on guitar, vocals; Patti Scialfa on guitar, vocals; Garry Tallent on bass guitar; Stevie Van Zandt on guitar, vocals; and Max Weinberg on drums; with Soozie Tyrell on violin, guitar, vocals and Charlie Giordano on keyboards. The tour will be the first since saxophonist Clarence Clemons passed away last summer at 69 years old.
