New York Festival To Feature Bruce Springsteen Footage
Bruce Springsteen Footage of Bruce Springsteen crooning material from “Darkness At The Edge Of Town” in an empty theater will debut in New York next month. TheWrap.com reports that Springsteen’s performance — also titled “Darkness At The Edge Of Town” will premiere at the DOC NYC Festival on November 4th. Director Tom Zimny captured rock and roll’s “Boss” at New Jersey’s Paramount Theater last December while the venue was vacant. Springsteen fans won’t need to attend the documentary festival in Manhattan to see the footage. Zimny’s film will also serve as a bonus DVD in a “Darkness” boxed set due late next month.
At the Toronto International Film Festival earlier in the year, Springsteen said that he and Zimny worked on the Paramount Theater shoot just after the end of his two-year “Working On A Dream” tour. The rocker added that prior to filming, he told his wife and bandmate Patti Scialfa that he, quote, “had one more thing to do.” To this, Scialfa reportedly replied, quote, “Fine. But we have people coming over tonight, so be home by seven.” Springsteen said that he performed the entire “Darkness” album twice and still made it home by his dinner deadline.
