It’s been over a year since Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band wrapped up their most recent tour, but today they’re announced their next U.S. trek.

While Springsteen tours are generally based around new albums, this one promotes his just released box set, The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, based on his 1980 double album The River.

The tour looks to be a more stripped down affair compared to the last one: gone are the backing singers, the horn section, the percussionist and guest guitarist Tom Morello. The current lineup, per a press release, is Springsteen on guitar and vocals, Roy Bittan on keyboards, Nils Lofgren on guitar and vocals, Patti Scialfa on guitar and vocals, Garry Tallent on bass, Steven Van Zandt on guitar and vocals and Max Weinberg on drums, along with Soozie Tyrell on violin, guitar and vocals, Charlie Giordano on keyboards and Jake Clemons on saxophone.
