News broke this morning that Bruce Springsteen will be adding a handful of musicians to his infamous E Street Band for his 2012 Wrecking Ball World Tour.

The expanded lineup is expected to include past members of the E Street Band, Cindy Mizelle and Curtis King on vocals as well as Gayton, Curt Ramm, and Eddie Manion on horns.

Also sharing the spotlight with Manion, however, will be the newest member to the line up, Jake Clemons, nephew of the legendary saxophonist and long time member of Springsteen’s E Street Band, the late Clarence Clemons.

The Wrecking Ball tour will kick off March 18th in Atlanta at the Phillips Arena in support of Springsteen’s 17th studio album, Wrecking Ball, which is scheduled for release March 6th, 2012 via Colombia Records.
