Hall Of Fame plan Springsteen exhibition

By | Published on Monday 9 March 2009

The US Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame are planning an exhibition devoted entirely to Bruce Springsteen. ‘From Asbury Park To The Promised Land: The Life And Music Of Bruce Springsteen’ will open on 1 Apr, three days ahead of the institution’s annual induction ceremony. ‘The Boss’, who has just released his 24th album, was inducted back in 1999.

Previous exhibitions at the Hall have focussed on the likes of Bob Dylan, Ray Charles and John Lennon. Curator Jim Henke says: “He’s someone we’ve always wanted to do a big exhibit on. So it’s one of those things that I’d bring up with his manager from time to time. Last summer they said, ‘Yes, it makes sense now'”.

Springsteen has provided a number of items for the display, including a number of guitars. Springsteen’s manager Jon Landau said: “Once he knew this was real, that it would really happen, he wanted it to have as much depth as it could possibly have. He is fully behind this exhibition and the effort the museum has made to really get things right”.
