The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will unveil its latest exhibit, From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen on Wednesday, April 1 during the 2009 Induction Ceremony week of events. This will be the first major artifact-driven exhibit about Springsteen’s career. The exhibit will run through the spring of 2010.
From Asbury Park to the Promised Land will be a comprehensive look at Springsteen’s music, from such early bands as Child, the Castiles and Steel Mill through his work with the E Street Band and as a solo artist. The exhibit will include several of Springsteen’s guitars, including the Fender Esquire that is on the cover of “Born to Run.” It will also include the outfit he wore on the cover of Born in the U.S.A., as well as numerous handwritten lyric manuscripts, posters and handbills from all phases of his career, and various awards and honors. In addition, the exhibit will include Springsteen’s 1960 Chevrolet Corvette, which he purchased after the success of Born to Run.
Bruce Springsteen was inducted into the Rock and Hall of Fame in 1999.
