NEW YORK (AP) — Bruce Springsteen is coming back to America, and the mid-state is on his tour calendar.

The music icon announced a new set of U.S. tour dates Monday after finishing recent treks in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Springsteen and the E Street Band will kick off the 15-date tour on April 8 in Cincinnati. His new tour will visit Nashville, Tenn.; Atlanta; Tampa, Fla.; and Houston, among other cities.

Tickets go on sale at various times this month, with the earliest date being Friday. The tour wraps May 18 after two consecutive nights at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn.

Springsteen's latest album, "High Hopes," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart last month.
