SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP) — Bruce Springsteen is heading out on tour in late September. But not a musical tour. On Monday, Springsteen announced a nine-stop book tour that will begin at a bookstore in his childhood hometown of Freehold, New Jersey on September 27th.
Springsteen’s memoir, “Born to Run,” will be released the same day. The book tour comes after Springsteen and the E Street Band wrap up a 75-show music tour on Wednesday in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
In the book, Springsteen remembers his childhood in New Jersey, his rise to superstardom and personal struggles that inspired songs such as “Born to Run” and “Thunder Road.”
Springsteen’s book tour will also stop in New York; Philadelphia; Seattle; Los Angeles; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Portland, Oregon and here in San Francisco.
