‘Singin’ our birthday songs’

Announcing a special birthday screening of Springsteen & I in NJ The Friends of the Bruce Springsteen Special Collection have just announced a special New Jersey benefit screening of the documentary film Springsteen & I in celebration of Bruce’s 64th birthday on Monday, September 23 at 7:30pm. The screening will be held at Pollak Theatre on the campus of Monmouth University, the home of the Special Collection. All ticket-sale proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Bruce Springsteen Special Collection and Monmouth University.

This will mark the first time that Springsteen & I will be screened in Monmouth County, the NJ county that includes both Bruce’s hometown of Freehold and his adopted musical hometown of Asbury Park. It also will be one of the final chances to catch the film, featuring  fan-filmed testimonials along with exclusive live footage from Springsteen’s official archives, presented on a big screen with hundreds of fellow  fans.

In addition to screening the film, the Friends are planning a few extra activities to celebrate Bruce’s birthday in style at the theatre shortly before the lights go down and the movie begins. As the Friends’ recent advance message to members noted, “If you’re a Springsteen fan and can make it to this event, you’ll be glad you were there.”

Ticket sales for the Bruce’s Birthday screening of Springsteen & I begin Monday, September 16, at 9am ET. Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased online through Tickets.com or by telephone at (732) 263-6889.
