Bruce Springsteen has announced the addition of two new saxophonists to his upcoming world tour with the E Street Band.

According to a statement on Springsteen's website posted Thursday, longtime collaborator Eddie Manion will share the saxophone role with Jake Clemons, Clarence Clemons' nephew.

Returning singers Cindy Mizelle and Curtis King, trombonist Clark Gayton and trumpeter Curt Ramm also will be on the tour, along with newcomer Barry Danielian on trumpet.

"Wrecking Ball" is Springsteen's 17th album and the first since the death of saxophonist Clarence Clemons last summer.

The tour starts March 18 in Atlanta, and will stop in Los Angeles at the end of April. Check out the tour dates for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
