It’s that time again — the tour’s behind him, and Bruce Springsteen will start showing up in various and sundry locations strumming his guitar and looking generally ready to hit the road again. And tomorrow, you’ll be able to watch him do it — there’s a live stream coming for the annual Stand Up For Heroes fundraiser in NYC, where Bruce breaks out a new dirty joke every year.

Maybe a sign that something (anything?) new might hit the shelves soon … Or maybe not. (He does have a South African tour to get ready for, after all.)
