Bruce Springsteen plans to hit the ground running in 2008. Joined by his E Street Band, the rock legend has booked 54 domestic and international concerts starting Feb. 28 in Hartford, CT and winding down with three concerts July 27-28 and 31 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

The European leg of the tour will consist of 18 dates between May 22 and July 20. As Springsteen normally does, more shows are likely to be added, especially at Giants Stadium.

Columbia Records has released a “Girls In Their Summer Clothes” music bundle exclusively through the iTunes Store that marks the premiere of Springsteen’s “Girls In Their Summer Clothes” video and also includes a “Winter Mix” of the song and a live rendition. Directed by Mark Pellington (Springsteen’s “Lonesome Day,” Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy”), the video was shot in Ocean Grove and Asbury Park, NJ.
