The Born in the U.S.A. Tour was the supporting concert tour of Bruce Springsteen's massively popular Born in the U.S.A. album. It was his longest and most successful tour to date. It featured a physically transformed Springsteen. After two years of bodybuilding, Springsteen had bulked up considerably. The tour started in June 1984 and went stateside and Canada. In March 1985 the tour went to Japan and Europe. It then headed back a second leg of the U.S. in which Springsteen and the E Street Band played out to sold out professional football stadiums. The tour finally wound down in October 1985 in Los Angeles.

The tour grossed between $80–90 million overall.[1] Of that, $34 million came from Springsteen's summer 1985 stadium dates in North America.[1] It is particularly notable that Springsteen had the "Born in the U.S.A." album inside the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 during the entire tour. He also was enjoying a hit single from the album (there were seven in total) during any moment of the tour. At this point in his career. he was the biggest white male star in the world since Elvis.
