Bruce Springsteen closes out Springsteen On Broadway series

Bruce Springsteen closed out his “Springsteen On Broadway” series on December 15 after 236 performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York.

Springsteen fanzine Backstreets shared video footage (below) of the New Jersey rocker’s final bow before a sold-out audience at the intimate New York venue.

Launched in October of 2017, the one-man show saw the singer deliver a stripped-down, solo performance while sharing details behind some of his legendary material.

“I want to thank all of our co-workers, friends and fans for making my year on Broadway one of the most creatively memorable of my life,” shared Springsteen on social media. “To have come this far then be able to share my music with you the way we have this year has meant a great deal to me.

“A thanks must go out to Jon Landau,. Barbara Carr, George Travis and everyone at JLM, the men and women of the Walter Kerr Thearte, and Jordan Roth, and the folks at Jujamcyn. A special thanks to my lovely wife Patti (Scialfa) for lending her beautiful voice and presence to our work together. She’s been a nightly inspiration.”

“Our closing is bittersweet,”
he added, “but more adventures await down the road. I’ll see you there.”

Earlier this year, Springsteen received a special Tony Award for the Broadway series at the 72nd annual edition of the event in New York City.

Just hours after the final performance, a film of “Springsteen On Broadway” by director Thom Zimny – captured over a pair of private performances in July – made its worldwide debut on Netflix following the release of a companion soundtrack album of the same name.
