UPDATED 12:45 p.m.: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to play Tampa

UPDATED 12:45 p.m. (via email from Tampa Bay Times Forum — note prices still not listed): Tickets for the show go on sale this Saturday, January 28 at 11 a.m. at the McDonald’s Ticket Office at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, Ticketmaster outlets and at Ticketmaster.com. To order tickets by phone call 800.745.3000.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's "Wrecking Ball" World Tour has a date at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on March 23.

No prices have been announced yet but tickets go on sale Jan. 28, according to Springsteen's website.

It's the third stop of the tour, following the March 6 release of the album "Wrecking Ball," and only Florida date.

This will be the band's first tour since the death of sax man Clarence Clemons.
Springsteen recently released "We Take Care of Our Own," the first single off the upcoming album (watch official video below).

I wrote about it Sunday:
One of the few superstar artists left who still makes music that matters, Bruce Springsteen offers a powerful, nuanced slice of poetic rock ’n’ roll on his new single “We Take Care of Our Own.”

Propulsive drums push the fist-pumping melody.

Then there’s a chorus that could easily be mistaken for simple jingoism.

“Wherever this flag is flown,” Springsteen sings. “We take care of our own.”

It’s easy to get lost in the inviting mix of potent percussion, cutting modern guitar, somber keyboards and rich strings — but pay attention to the verses.

There’s a darkness on the edge of each line.
