Credit: Joel BernsteinIt looks like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be jumping back into The River, the Boss’ classic 1980 double album, on a North American trek that will get underway next month. Springsteen has just announced dates for The River Tour, which kicks off January 16 in Pittsburgh and is mapped out through a March 17 concert in Los Angeles.

The tour announcement today coincides with the release of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, an expansive box set featuring recordings Bruce made during the 1979 and 1980 sessions for The River.

Each show on the tour will be recorded and mixed, and will be made available for purchase as a high-quality digital download and on CD via Bruce’s website, released within days after they take place. The trek will include two-night stands in New York City and L.A., and also will stop in pretty much every major U.S. city from coast to coast, as well as Toronto.

As previously reported, The Ties That Bind: The River Collection contains four CDs and either three DVDs or two Blu-ray discs, and includes a remastered edition of The River, an early 10-song single-disc version of the album, a variety of outtakes, a making-of documentary and a previously unreleased 1980 concert video. The box set also features a 148-page hardcover coffee table book boasting rare and unseen photographs, a new foreword penned by acclaimed journalist Mikal Gilmore, comments Springsteen wrote about The River from the 1998 book Songs, and more.

Prior to launching the 2016 River Tour, Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform on the 2015 finale of Saturday Night Live, which will air December 19 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
