In NovemberSpringsteen and manager Jon Landau discussed how they wanted to promote the box set. Landau suggested performing The River at a few small shows in New York City and Los Angeles; however, Springsteen said it would take too long to rehearse and suggested doing twenty shows.
Drummer Max Weinberg said he got the call from Springsteen on Thanksgivinga week before the tour was announced to the public. It's my own version of force majeure. It's an act of God or Bruce Springsteen.
And it works all the time. Nils Lofgren had to change dates on his solo tour, while Gary Tallent had to postpone his. Unlike the previous few tours, the touring lineup will be downsized and will not feature a full horn section or backing vocalists.
The tighter lineup feels much more like the old days", Springsteen said. Like previous tours, Patti Scialfa hasn't been present at every show due to her responsibilities as a mother supporting her daughter in her equestrian career.
Due to Patti not being present at every show, along with no choir, Garry Tallent, standing in Patti's spot on stage, sang backup vocals on a consistent basis on the front line this tour.
