The Boss is Back: Bruce Springsteen is coming to Izod Center
By LISA ARTHUR of NorthJersey.com

Bruce Springsteen dropped what will be a welcomed surprise for his U.S. fans this morning. The first leg of his "Wrecking Ball" tour starts in Atlanta in March, not in Spain in May as previously announced, according to Brucespringsteen.net.

Heads up for local fans: Tickets for shows in Jersey and New York City go on sale Jan. 27. He plays the Izod Center on April 3, 4; Madison Square Garden April 6, 9; and Newark's Prudential Center on May 2, the last US date before the European leg.

For fanatics of the have-ticket-will- travel ilk, there are also dates in Philly, D.C. and Boston.

It's expected Springsteen will be back in the US during the fall, and there have been some reports he will be playing outdoor venues, with Wrigley Field in Chicago being repeatedly mentioned. None of that has been confirmed though.

"Wrecking Ball" is set to be released March 6. The first single "We Take Care of Our Own" was released last week and is available for download on iTunes and Amazon.com

Here is the complete list of US dates.
