Pour la tournée 2012 de Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Manion et Jake Clemons (neveu de Clarence) se partageront le saxo.
Voici le line-up étendu du groupe annoncé ce 9 février 2012 sur le site officiel de Bruce Springsteen.
The expanded lineup for this Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band tour features singers Cindy Mizelle and Curtis King, trombonist Clark Gayton and trumpeter Curt Ramm, all of whom have toured with Bruce Springsteen in the past, along with newcomer Barry Danielian on trumpet. E Street stalwart Eddie Manion and first time tour member Jake Clemons will share the saxophone role.
Explications de Backstreets
Here we go… a five-piece horn section is officially on board for the Wrecking Ball tour:
Jake Clemons – Saxophone
Barry Danielian – Trumpet
Clark Gayton – Trombone
Eddie Manion – saxophone
Curt Ramm – Trumpet
With the exception of Clarence’s nephew Jake, in for Stan Harrison, this is the same line-up that backed Bruce and the ’78-era E Street Band at the Asbury Park Carousel House performance in 2010 (which bodes well for all of us hoping to hear material from The Promise on the new tour).
Jake Clemons has guested with the E Street Band before, but this will be his first tour; the other sax player, Eddie Manion, has played with Bruce in various incarnations for decades. Welcome back, Kingfish! [Watch Ed take on the « Jungleland » solo last summer, above.] Curt Ramm was a featured player at the end of the Working on a Dream tour; he and Clark Gayton also toured with the Sessions Band. Barry Danielian is a relatively new addition to the fold.
