Bruce Springsteen released his solo album, Western Stars, last month, and while fans won’t be getting a tour, they still will be getting some sort of performance of the LP.
Springsteen said in a new interview today (July 10) that a new performance film will be released at some point in 2019.
“We made a film of us playing the Western Stars album start to finish,” said The Boss. “I knew we weren’t going to tour, so I figured this was the best way to do it.”
The film is directed by Thom Zimny, who also directed Springsteen’s super-successful Broadway show Springsteen On Broadway.
A good reason why Springsteen won’t be touring in support of Western Stars likely has to do with new music and a tour with the E Street Band. Springsteen revealed in a sit-down interview with director Martin Scorsese at a Netflix event in May that he had written new E Street material and that “There’ll be another tour.”
