Springsteen on Broadway Trailer

"I wanted to know my story, your story, where are we going together as people." Netflix has released an official trailer for Springsteen on Broadway, a film version of iconic musician Bruce Springsteen's hit Broadway show - which is still goes on every night in New York City (get tickets here). The autobiographical show is a solo acoustic performance written & performed Bruce - an intimate evening with him, his guitar, a piano, and his own stories—including a special appearance by Patti Scialfa. If you can't afford to fly all the way to New York City, and/or can't afford the cost of these popular Broadway tickets, then this documentary is for you to experience this special musical event right in your own home. From this tiny bit of footage in the trailer, this certainly seems like a very moving, heartfelt, and inspiring live music experience. See below.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Thom Zimny's Springsteen on Broadway, direct from YouTube:

He said that in the context of saying he now lives 10 minutes away from the place he ran away from...of course, you know that. I don't think he's god, but he one of the best preachers that has ever lived.

Well, since we're talking music, I'm interested in what you listen to...

Well, pretty much the same...I'm an old radical hippie, too. I do like some of the new blues players...Samantha Fish, John Mayer, Bonamassa. Greg Koch is a great guitarist I love, as well as Jeff Beck, of course. Los Lobos is one of my very favorites, as is U2.

I really did (and still do) like some of his songs and albums and never saw him performing alive. But if I could, this definitely isn't what I would like to see. Of course, as you said, no need to have an idol either. I think he wants to live out some versions of his performative powers, but I also agree with you that what he really needs to do is singing. Everything else is over the top of what he is ...

shiboleth on Nov 28, 2018


Yeah, I agree, a play of vanity is present here. I think that he also kinda looks for some other kind of performative accomplishment besides his usual, music stage, but he just can't and won't find it. I guess, he can't acknowledge his performative limits. Yeah, I'm in fact repeating myself too. So, cheers back ...

Never liked his style. And I am still wondering why people like his music. I know at least 20 artists that are better than him, but don't have such fame...

tarek on Nov 28, 2018


Well, it's not that bad music, tarek. But then again, I think that after 1980s he kinda stopped developing himself in that sense and is mostly repeating the formula he learned before. So, I also must agree with you. Everything else is his style of performance, something that helps him to relate his sensibility to other people. He's good at that, one must admit it ...

shiboleth on Nov 28, 2018


I don't know shiboleth. His music doesn't move me at all. It lacks the emotion-provoking dimension, musically speaking. He has a special voice, and that's all for me.

tarek on Nov 29, 2018


Oh, it's ok tarek. And fairly stated attitude. I would be lying to say something different. I did like his music very much at some point of my life, exactly the way you described just the opposite. But that was when I was younger and than moved to other artists. As you said, there's a lot of them.

shiboleth on Nov 29, 2018


Great for people who love this type of singing. Personally, Springsteen and his E Street band has always been a little boring.

DAVIDPD on Nov 28, 2018


Go sing Boss, this is not a thing for you, not even close ...
