Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are renowned for their electrifying live performances, enthralling crowds with their contagious passion and intensity. Fans now have a rare chance to see inside Bruce Springsteen’s creative process thanks to a brand-new interactive exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
“The “Bruce Springsteen Live!” exhibit will bring the live concert experience to visitors and fans, we have many interactive components to this exhibit,” said co-curator Eileen Chapman, Director of The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music to Localish. “You can create your own encore. We have Bruce’s handwritten setlists, so there’s the opportunity to play drums with Max Weinberg.”
The exhibition will showcase 49 years’ worth of personal belongings from Bruce’s career, including stage attire, instruments, handwritten notes, rare photographs, exclusive interviews, and original songs.
“We have stage clothing and instruments from each of the band members, the signs that fans held up for different songs at shows are here, t-shirts, bumper stickers, backstage passes, tickets – they’re here for the first time,” said Chapman.
The exhibit sheds light on Bruce’s development into one of the greatest live performers in rock & roll history through these personal artifacts and interactive features. For the Museum’s display, Springsteen fans are asked to contribute videos detailing their live concert memories from the artist’s performances over the years.
