The Boss is coming to Australia.
Bruce Springsteen announced this week that he plans to tour Down Under in 2020, following the release of his latest album, Western Stars.
‘I always love coming to Australia [because] it’s become a great, great place for us with a great audience for us there,’ the 70-year-old said on Monday.
‘It’s a joy to come, so hopefully late next year we’ll be getting out there,’ he told 9Honey.
Bruce, who is known for his hits Dancing in the Dark and Born in the U.S.A., released his first studio album in five years in June.
Western Stars has also been adapted into a film, which is scheduled to be released on December 4.
Bruce said that turning his album into a film would help fans connect with his songs.
‘Because it was new music, I felt I needed a way to help my audience access the inner life of the songs,’ he explained.
‘So one night I was sitting in front of the television and I just started to scribble down ideas for each song and in a couple of hours, I had a script.’
Bruce’s wife and E Street Band member, Patti Scialfa, is also featured in the film, which sees the pair accompanied by an orchestra.
Last year, Bruce also released a successful Netflix special, Springsteen on Broadway.
The film proved to be a success and its director, Thom Zimny, won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special.
