After returning to the stage in Phoenix on Tuesday, Bruce Springsteen called into his SiriusXM channel – E Street Radio (channel 20) – to discuss rebooting The E Street Band’s 2024 World Tour. Bruce talked to E Street Radio host Jim Rotolo, who was broadcasting live from the Wynn Las Vegas ahead of the band’s performance at Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. Listen to the full interview on the SiriusXM app now.

Bruce Springsteen details how his tour has evolved

“Viva, viva Las Vegas!” Bruce said at the start of the call.

During the 12-minute conversation, Bruce revealed whether The E Street Band will change their setlist during this year’s tour, shared how it felt returning to the stage in Arizona, and reflected on his tour act has evolved.

“I think we’re approaching [the 2024 World Tour] like it’s a new tour,” Bruce said. “There will be some things from last year’s tour that will hold over; some of my basic themes of mortality and life. Those things I’m gonna keep set, but I think I’m gonna move around the other parts of the set a lot more. So there’ll be a much wider song selection going on.”

He also looked back at his health problems last year that caused him and the band to postpone their world tour.

“When I had the stomach problem, one of the big problems was that I couldn’t sing,” Bruce said. “You sing with your diaphragm. My diaphragm was hurting so badly that when I went to make the effort to sing, it was killing me. So I literally couldn’t sing at all. And that lasted for two or three months, along with just a myriad of other painful problems. During the course of it – before people told me, ‘Oh no, it’s going to go away and you’re going to be OK’ – you know, you’re thinking, ‘Hey, am gonna sing again?’ This is one of the things I love to do the best, most. And right now, I can’t do it.”

Fortunately, Bruce’s voice is back – and so is his world tour! Check out the remaining tour dates below.
