Rock star Bruce Springsteen has unveiled plans for a world tour, to start in California in April.

The singer, whose theme song to hit film The Wrestler won a Golden Globe, has confirmed dates across the US and Europe in the spring and summer.

A show is planned for Dublin's RDS on 11 July, but no UK dates have yet been confirmed. Springsteen has been heavily tipped to headline Glastonbury in June.

He is also due to play at next week's American football Super Bowl.

The singer performed at US President Barack Obama's inauguration festivities earlier this month.

The tour starts at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California, on 1 April, crossing the Atlantic for a 30 May date at Dutch festival Pinkpop.

European dates include shows in Stockholm, Munich, Vienna, Rome, Turin and Bilbao, while the last date is in Santiago, Spain, on 2 August.

Springsteen's latest album, Working on a Dream, has just been released.
