"The  Boss" is back. Bruce Springsteen announced on his website Sunday that he will be touring with the E Street Band in 2012. According to the band's website, European dates have been set and US tour dates will be added shortly. Springsteen went on to say that a new album is in the works and a release date is in the works, but not official yet. The official website went on to say that the band is 'incredibly excited' about what they have planned for 2012.

This will be the first tour for the E Street Band since saxophonist Clarence Clemons died in June from complications of a stroke.

Springsteen's last tour was the "Working on a Dream" tour, which ended in 2009.
