New album 'Soulfire' is out now...

Stevie Van Zandt is set to play a flurry of live shows later this year.

Best known as Bruce Springsteen's right-hand man for a number of decades, the guitarist and songwriter also took a starring role in The Sopranos.

Multi-talented, Stevie Van Zandt released new album 'Soulfire' earlier this year, a return to original studio work after a short break.

“I’ve always been very thematic with my work, very conceptual,” Van Zandt says. “I need a big picture, I can’t just do a collection of songs, that doesn’t work for me. In this case, the concept became me. Who am I? I’m kind of my own genre at this point. So I tried to pick material that when you added it all up, really represented me. So there are a couple of covers, a couple of new songs, and some of what I feel are the best songs I’ve written and co-written over the years. This record is me doing me.”

Hitting the road, Stevie Van Zandt will play a number of UK shows, opening at London's Roundhouse venue on November 4th.

The songwriter then plays Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, and Newcastle, backed by his band Disciples Of Soul.
