Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will return to Australia this coming February, including shows for the first time ever in Perth and Adelaide.

The trip follows the Wrecking Ball tour earlier this year, which was Springsteen’s first visit to Australia in more than a decade and won a Helpmann Award for Best International Contemporary Concert.

Springsteen’s manager Jon Landau says the American rockers were plotting a return to Australia as soon as they wrapped up their last show at Hanging Rock.

“This will be our most far reaching tour of Australasia ever and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are planning to make it their finest,” he said in a statement.

Pub rockers Hunters & Collectors will reform to be guests at the Melbourne show, along with the soulful Dan Sultan. Sultan will also support the band when they play in the NSW Hunter Valley.

 The proud New Jersey native’s 17 albums have sold 120 million copies and he has won 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, an Academy Award and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. He’s doing alright.

Documentary film “Springsteen & I” will have encore screenings in selected cinemas between August 19 and 21.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will play the following dates:

February 7 – Perth Arena
February 11 – Entertainment Centre, Adelaide
February 15 – (with guests Hunters & Collectors and Dan Sultan) AAMI Park, Melbourne
February 19 – Allphones Arena, Sydney
February 22 – (with guest Dan Sultan) Hope Estate, Hunter Valley
