Most Bruce Springsteen fans probably guessed that The E Street Band would be taking a break after this tour wraps up, but now it's a bit more official: Little Steven Van Zandt, Nils Lofgren and Roy Bittan held a conference call with journalists, and said that they'd probably be taking a year and a half or two years off after the Working On A Dream tour wraps in November. They've been working for over two years straight at this point: the classic Magic album came out just about two years ago (on October 2, 2007 - just weeks after No Expiration started), they toured a lot, recorded Working On A Dream during breaks in the tour, put that out, and have been touring since. I'm sure Bruce will take some time off, and probably do a solo acoustic thing, or maybe hook up with the folks he worked with in The Seeger Sessions Band again. I'd love to see them do an album of Hank Williams songs. I've also heard that the Darkness On The Edge Of Town box set (which will be similar in format to the Born To Run box set that came out a while back) is coming before the end of the year.
