LOS ANGELES Bruce Springsteen will launch a world tour this year, the rock performer said on his website on Tuesday as his album "Working on a Dream" hit music stores.
Springsteen and his E Street Band will start their 47-date tour on April 1 in San Jose, California. They also will perform in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago and other U.S. cities.
Following those shows, the tour will head to Europe with stops including Sweden, Italy, France and Spain.
Springsteen, 59, will perform at the half-time show for the Super Bowl professional football championship on Sunday.
His last tour with the E Street Band was in 2007. "Working on a Dream" is Springsteen's 24th album. It received a five-star rating from Rolling Stone magazine but other reviews were less positive.
