Taylor Hill/Getty ImagesBruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are heading Down Under for a tour of Australia and New Zealand that runs from this Sunday through February 25, but when the trek is through, bassist Gary Tallent will take on the role of “Boss” and hit the road for a U.S. solo outing. Tallent’s tour kicks off April 21 in Edwardsville, Illinois, and is mapped out through a May 15 concert in Richmond, Virginia.
The trek currently consists of 14 dates, and includes stops in Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and New York City, and well as a performance at Springsteen’s famous stomping grounds — The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey. In a post on his Twitter feed, Tallent promises that more dates will be added soon, among them some shows in the United Kingdom.
