Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band to tour in 2012

(AP) - Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are setto go on the road in 2012.

Springsteen announced plans to tour the United States and Europe on his official website Sunday. Dates were to be announced later.

He also wrote the band is "incredibly excited" about the new year, adding their new music is "almost done" and "still untitled," but with an undetermined release date.

This will be the first tour for the E Street Band since saxophonist Clarence Clemons died in June from complications of a stroke.

Springsteen's last tour was the "Working on a Dream" tour, which ended in 2009.
