Everybody loves a rumour and a leak. It’s human nature to want to know everybody’s secrets first. If you’re are that way inclined then music is a good place to be because leaks and rumours are common day occurrences within the industry.

With that in mind we bring you the latest leak/rumour, that of a Bruce Springsteen tour in 2012. According to Liveguide, a popular Springsteen fansite published a list of upcoming tour dates and hidden amongst the long list was a group of dates set aside for down under.

Springsteen and his E Street Band, who suffered a tragedy earlier in the year when longtime sax player Clarence Clemons suffered a stroke and died, have already confirmed a number of dates throughout Europe between May and July, and have confirmed there are plans for a tour of North American as well as the rest of the world planned for sometime after.

The rumoured Australian dates fit nicely into those plans, so while you should take them with a grain of salt don’t be too surprised if you hear an official announcement in the not too distant future.

That’s if Springsteen doesn’t hang up the boots and decide to run for Governor of New Jersey first. A poll conducted earlier in the year showed that if the famous musician decided to run for politics in his home state he’d romp home in the polls.
