Bruce Springsteen has just announced a string of arena and stadium tour dates for the US this Spring. These dates come at the heels of his shows in South Africa (his first ever), Australia and New Zealand. Tickets for many of these shows go on sale this Friday, February 14. For more information, you can check out The Boss’ website.

Full dates for the U.S. and the remaining Australian tour are listed below.

Fans in Australia got a rare treat this past weekend as Springsteen and the E Street Band kicked off their 28-song set on Saturday (Feb. 8) at Perth Arena with AC/DC‘s “Highway to Hell” for the very first time in concert.

The last of three nights in Perth, Springsteen walked onto the stage, asking the crowd, “Ready for Round 3?” As chants of “Bruce!” engulfed the Perth Arena, and a very familiar guitar lick was heard, the crowd went wild.

An ode to late AC/DC singer Bon Scott, who grew up near Perth, “Highway to Hell” was also the title track to the last album he recorded before his death in 1980.

Springsteen’s set will be available for download soon as part of his bootleg series. Fans will be able to download the complete audio of each concert from his current tour in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand within 48 hours after the show ends. The Feb. 7 show in Perth is available now for download in the Official Springsteen Store.

Springsteen released his latest album, High Hopes, last month. The record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, making it his 11th No. 1 album.
