Bruce Springsteen Documentary About E Street Band World Tour Set at Disney+ and Hulu

Disney+ and Hulu have set a new Bruce Springsteen documentary for an October premiere.

“Road Diary: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band” will follow the band’s 2023-2024 world tour, featuring footage from band rehearsals and backstage moments, conversations with Springsteen as he develops the setlist and archival clips of the E Street Band. The project is intended to complement Springsteen’s existing body of autobiographical works, which includes the memoir “Born to Run,” the live performance (and documentary) “Springsteen on Broadway,” and the films “Western Stars” and “Letter to You.”

The documentary is directed by Thom Zimny, the longtime Springsteen collaborator behind “Western Stars” and “Springsteen on Broadway,” as well as music docs “The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash” and “Willie Nelson & Family.” Zimny also produces alongside Springsteen, Springsteen’s manager Jon Landau, Adrienne Gerard and Sean Stuart.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band recently capped the first 2024 leg of their world tour and will play 25 shows throughout Europe this spring and summer before returning to North America for more dates beginning in August.

The documentary is not the only Springsteen project soon headed to screens. “The Bear” star Jeremy Allen White is in talks to play the legendary rocker in an upcoming biopic titled “Deliver Me From Nowhere,” which will follow the making of the 1982 album “Nebraska.” “Succession” star Jeremy Strong is in talks to play Landau, as Variety exclusively reported, while 20th Century Studios recently boarded as distributor of the Gotham Group-produced film.
