Little Steven Talks About Rascals Reunion, E Street Fall Tour [VIDEO/AUDIO]
Middletown native Little Steven Van Zandt made a special Easter call in to Tom Cunningham on Townsquare Media’s 105.7 The Hawk’s Bruce Brunch to discuss his upcoming projects.
Van Zandt discussed reuniting The Rascals for their upcoming mid-April run on Broadway in Once Upon A Dream and also said that fall tour dates for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band in the US were “very unlikely.”
“That’s a whole another set of commitments,” said Little Steven. “I haven’t heard a word about (a fall tour).” He noted that the Wrecking Ball tour has been going since February,2012 and called the tour, scheduled to go through the summer “enough for now.”
The band toured in the U.S. last fall including 3 memorable dates at MetLife Stadium before heading overseas. The Wrecking Ball tour will play in Europe for most of the summer with dates scheduled through July. The band will also play the Rock In Rio concert in Rio de Janeiro in Septemeber.
There are a number of open dates on the E Street Band’s schedule in August. Van Zandt offered a bit of hope for summer shows saying “you never know what Bruce has planned.”
Little Steven can be heard weekly on the Underground Garage Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on 105.7 The Hawk.
