Springsteen Documentary to Be Shown on HBO
On the trails of a successful 2009 complete with Grammy win and performances at Obama‘s inaugural celebration and the Superbowl, The Boss returns again!
A [lastfm]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm] documentary called The Promise: The Making of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ will air on HBO, premiering Sept. 14 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Directed by Thom Zimney, the documentary follows the making of [lastfm]Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band[/lastfm]‘s fourth album Darkness on the Edge of Town.
A blend of rehearsal footage and recent commentary by Springsteen and the band, the film documents the musician’s work from 1975’s Darkness to 1978 when he was prohibited from recording due to a pending lawsuit.
HBO co-president Richard L. Plepler said of the film:
The fact that this footage has been sitting in a vault, and no one has seen it for more than 30 years is just extraordinary.
