Share This:

Dec. 14 was the release date for Springsteen on Broadway, the audio souvenir of The Boss’ long-running, Tony-winning one-man show on the Great White Way. Listen to several his familiar songs, reinterpreted, below.

The show, which has been running five nights a week at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City since October 2017, closed Dec. 15, with a Netflix film of the show premiering the following day. (See Springsteen’s closing remarks below.)

The album, announced Nov. 2, 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.

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 played for a total of 236 performances by the time it closed. It was originally scheduled to run for six weeks, but received three extensions. Every show sold out and the production received nearly unanimously glowing reviews.

On the Dec. 15 closing night, Springsteen offered his thanks.
