Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are getting back on the road. The Boss announced the band's new world tour with a post on his official website, with the first European leg of the tour beginning in May 2012.
"Well things are starting to heat up on E Street," began the post on Springsteen's site.
The tour will be in support of the band's new, still- untitled album. "We want you to know that the music is almost done (but still untitled), we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet), and that we are all incredibly excited about everything that we're planning for 2012," the post said
The tour is Springsteen's first in three years and will be without the band's legendary saxophonist, Clarence Clemons, who died from a stroke last June.

The public library in Central Falls, R.I., that was temporarily closed because of the city's dire finances is expanding its hours again after receiving a donation from actress Viola Davis and a state grant.
The Adams Memorial Library said Monday that it got a $1,000 check from Davis, who grew up in Central Falls. Davis appeared recently in the movie 'The Help' and was nominated for an Oscar for her role in 2008's 'Doubt.'
The library has raised $61,000 since it was shuttered in July .
