Nils Lofgren, solo artist and guitarist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, has announced a 16 date UK tour.

Lofgren will hit the road in January next year, starting on the 8th in Milton Keynes and finishing up on the 26th in Hertfordshire.

The musician released a 10 disc retrospective of his work, Face The Music, earlier this year. Moved by the response from fans to the release, Lofgren posted a statement to his official website:

“Amy and I continue to be grateful for the many kind comments, observations and insights on the entire box set from all of you.”

“Realising so many of you have noticed the detail and care that went into every aspect; the story, the music, the photos, the concept and packaging; this means so very much to us and everyone involved. Thanks for your keen eyes and ears and spreading the word for us. Hopefully, more listeners will continue to become aware of this work.”

Nils’ wife Amy produced a video for a song from the collection, “You In My Arms”, which you can watch below. Confirmed tour dates for next year are as follows:
