The film will capture the legendary musician’s current Broadway show
The first trailer for Netflix‘s upcoming Springsteen On Broadway concert film has been released.
The special was filmed during Bruce Springsteen‘s current run at The Walter Kerr Theatre in New York and will be available on the streaming platform from December 16, a day after the Broadway show comes to an end.
In the trailer, Springsteen is seen sharing anecdotes and stories with the crowd, including how he met bandmate and wife Patti Scialfa outside famed New Jersey venue The Stone Pony, and about his relationship with his father. Later, he jokes: “Everybody has a love-hate relationship with their hometown. Take me, I’m Mr. ‘Born To Run’… I currently live 10 minutes from my hometown.” Watch the trailer below now.
Springsteen On Broadway premiered at the theatre in October 2017. It combines stories from the musician’s 2016 autobiography Born To Run and features performances of 15 of his best-loved songs from throughout his career.
Fans will also be able to enjoy the show from their own homes in a different way. On December 14, a live album will be released, featuring both the stories and songs included in the Broadway production.
Although the show has mostly followed the same structure and setlist every night, Springsteen has changed things up a little throughout the run. In June, he broke from the setlist to criticise Donald Trump and his “inhumane” immigration policy that saw thousands of children separated from their families. A month later, he surprised fans with an unexpected encore for the first time in the residency.
