(Cleveland)-Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band launch The River Tour, a nine-week US trek, making a stop at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday, February 23!

The announcement of the tour coincides with the release of "The Ties That Bind: The River Collection," a comprehensive look at the era of the 1980 "The River" album that "Rolling Stone" calls "Springsteen's best archival release yet."

Each night of the tour will be mixed for release on Live.BruceSpringsteen.net as high-quality downloads and CDs.

Recordings will be available within days of each performance.

The original The River Tour began October 3, 1980, two weeks before the release of Springsteen's fifth album, and continued through September 4, 1981.

With sets that regularly approached the four-hour range, the 140-date international tour firmly established a reputation for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as marathon performers.
