Springsteen Awakening

Bruce's Broadway soundtrack due next month

"Springsteen on Broadway" - Opening Night

The stage is set to bring home "Springsteen on Broadway."

The soundtrack of Bruce Springsteen's Tony Award-winning solo show in New York will be released as 2-CD and 4-LP sets on December 14.

That's the eve of his final performance at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which coincides with the Netflix premiere of the concert film "Springsteen on Broadway." The Netflix special was filmed in front of an invitation-only audience July 17-18.

The soundtrack features 16 songs that Springsteen performs on piano and acoustic guitar as he recounts tales of his life and career, culled from his 2016 memoir "Born to Run."

The set list kicks off with two autobiographical tales of youth, "Growin' Up" and "My Hometown," and later moves on to signature hits like "Born in the U.S.A.," "Dancing in the Dark" and, of course, "Born to Run." Springsteen is also accompanied by wife Patti Scialfa on two songs from 1987's "Tunnel of Love" album, "Tougher Than the Rest" and "Brilliant Disguise."

"Springsteen on Broadway" opened to rave reviews in October 2017 and has sold out every performance, five nights a week. The Boss has extended the run twice and hinted that he may take the show to other cities next year.
