Since Stevie Van Zandt’s filming commitments to his highly successful television show Lilyhammer will keep him off stage for the upcoming Australian tour dates, Bruce Springsteen has invited Tom Morello to sit in temporarily on guitar. Following the Australian dates, Van Zandt will return to the tour in Oslo, Norway on April 29, 2013.
Tom Morello performed on multiple recordings from ‘Wrecking Ball’ (Jack of All Trades, This Depression), and recently joined Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band onstage for performances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, at SXSW and for the legendary 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert. He has also joined the band on concert tour stops in NYC, Los Angeles and Chicago. Morello will perform at the 2013 MusiCares benefit gala honoring Bruce Springsteen.
A mainstay on Best Guitarist lists worldwide, Tom Morello AKA The Nightwatchman is also known for his outstanding work with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave.
