LOS ANGELES — Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are getting back on the road. The Boss announced the band’s new world tour with a post on his official website, with the first European leg of the tour beginning in May 2012.


“Well things are starting to heat up on E Street,” began the post on Springsteen’s site.


The tour will be in support of the band’s new, still-untitled album. “We want you to know that the music is almost done (but still untitled), we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet), and that we are all incredibly excited about everything that we’re planning for 2012,” the post said


The tour is Springsteen’s first in three years and will be without the band’s legendary saxophonist, Clarence Clemons, who died from a stroke last June. The band did not announce how they planned to replace Clemons.


The European leg of the tour will end in July, with dates in the U.S. and the rest of the world to follow.
