Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band launched their 2023 international tour on February 1st at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida - offering fans a high-energy 28-song set that included live staples like "Dancing In The Dark" and "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" alongside new material from Springsteen's most recent studio albums Letter To You and Only The Strong Survive. This return to the road marked Springsteen and The E Street Band's first live performance together since the conclusion of The River Tour in 2017, and first in North America since 2016.

"This was a night that reaffirmed the power of music and community...Springsteen is increasingly peerless, which makes his live shows circa 2023 all the more must-see." - SPIN

"Ecstatic, emotional...Springsteen and The E Street Band were locked in tight, beaming with joy, and feeding off the frenzied atmosphere in the crowd...let’s enjoy every second of it while we can." - Rolling Stone

"Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band rocked like their lives depended on it...two hours and 45 minutes of revved up rock, soul and remembrance." - USA Today

"If you’d wandered in from across the street, you’d likely assume they had been on the road for months already...the group was cooking from the opener...they were back in business." - Billboard
