Back in November, Bruce Springsteen announced a brand new album and tour for 2012. After months of speculation, about a month ago, a new single was released, "We Take Care of Our Own", and we were told which venues these concerts would be held. One question had remained: Who was going to replace Clarence Clemons for the tour? There were plenty of names thrown around.

Today, the announcement has been made.

Eddie Manion has played with Bruce before on his Seeger Sessions Tour in 2006. He has also recorded and shared a stage with the likes of Diana Ross, Southside Johnny, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Darlene Love, Ronnie Spector, and The Allman Brothers Band .

The other name listed may sound a bit more familiar, mainly because of the last name. Jake Clemons happens to be the nephew of the late Clarence Clemons and is also trying to follow in his uncle's footsteps as a saxophone player. This should be interesting.
