A Dec. 14 release date has been announced for Springsteen on Broadway, the audio souvenir of The Boss’ long-running, Tony-winning one-man show on the Great White Way. The show, which has been running five nights a week at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City since October 2017, will close Dec. 15, with a Netflix film of the show premiering the following day.

The album is the complete live performance of the show, and available physically as a 2-CD set, or on vinyl as a 4-LP set, as well as digitally. Springsteen on Broadway is the solo acoustic performance written and performed by Tony Award, Academy Award, and 20-time Grammy Award winner Bruce Springsteen.

The audio-only first track from Springsteen on Broadway, “Land of Hope and Dreams,” which appeared on his 2012 album Wrecking Ball, has been released. The song, according to NPR: “imagines a communal train where all are welcome — saints, sinners, whores, gamblers, thieves, lost souls, fools, kings, the brokenhearted — as it heads off to unknown future.”

Springsteen performs solo, on voice, guitar and sometimes piano, on all but two tracks, which also feature his wife, singer Patti Scialfa. See the complete track listing below.

In a statement announcing the global stream on Dec. 16, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said, “We are thrilled to bring Bruce Springsteen—a master storyteller, humanitarian and voice of the everyman—to Netflix in this historic one-man show. This groundbreaking experience defies the boundaries of theater, concerts and film and will give our global audience an intimate look at one of the biggest cultural icons of our time.”

Springsteen on Broadway will have played for a total of 236 performances by the time it closes. It was originally scheduled to run for six weeks, but has since received three extensions. Every show has sold out and the production has received nearly unanimously glowing reviews. While tickets for all of the performances have been immediate sell-outs, seats are available on StubHub.
