Bruce Springsteen has confirmed a UK tour for 2019 as well as a new album.

As his Broadway show Springsteen on Broadway comes to an end, he's looking towards his next project and a 'solo record' and UK tour with the E Street Band.

European dates, and possibly an Irish date, are expected to follow.

Speaking to The Times, he said the new album, his first since High Hopes in 2014, will be a 'singer-songwriter album - more of a solo record'.
