Bruce Springsteen coming to Milwaukee

The Boss is coming back to town.

Bruce Springsteen just announced his latest tour will include a stop at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The stop in Milwaukee will take place on March 3rd, according to his website. Tickets will go on sale for the tour on December 11th.

The tour is announced the same day as he is re-releasing a new edition of his groundbreaking 1980 album, "The River."

The announcement on his website says the 2016 The River Tour will pay homage to the tour that defined Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: 

The original The River Tour began Oct. 3, 1980, two weeks before the release of Springsteen’s fifth album, and continued through Sept. 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.

Springsteen last came to Milwaukee as part of Harley Fest in 2008 at the Summerfest grounds, the second Milwaukee stop on his 2008 tour.
