    The Boss and his boys are hitting that Thunder Road again—and, sadly, for the first without their Big Man, Clarence Clemons.

    Bruce Springsteen has revealed the itinerary for the first leg of his 2012 U.S. tour with the E Street Band in support of their new album, Wrecking Ball, hitting stores March 6.

    So which lucky towns will be seeing the rock and roll legend this spring?

    Listen to Springsteen's new single, "We Take Care Of Our Own"

    According to Springsteen's website, the trek will kick off March 18 in Atlanta and head up the East Coast, hitting the likes of Boston, Philadelphia and New York before making a left turn and heading to Detroit, Cleveland and Los Angeles. The band will then hop a plane to Europe for a summer tour.

    This will mark the first jaunt without Clemons. The E Streeters' beloved sax man  died last June at the age of 69 from complications of a stroke.

    The first single, "We Take Care Of Our Own," is now out to radio stations, and if the rest of the album sounds as solid, then Springsteen fans are in for a smashing good time.
