Whereas Bruce Springsteen Los Angeles fans are waiting for the Boss and the E Street Group to announce a local show in 2023, the Grammy Museum intervenes with an exhibition that covers his entire career.

Highlights of the exhibition include the born to run Esquire Guitar, Clarence Clemons‘ saxophone, the tunnel of love ticketing stage prop, Max Weinbergit is tunnel of love drum kit and an interactive drum kit with hints from Weinberg. An interactive kiosk will allow visitors to view Springsteen’s handwritten setlists and create their own encores to compare with his originals.

“Few artists embody the soul and excitement of live rock ‘n’ roll quite like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band,” the co-curator said. Robert Santelle. “This exhibition will provide new insight into how they have been able to remain one of the greatest live bands for five decades.”

The traveling show was created in partnership with the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University in New Jersey, which Santelli oversees.

Before the opening of Bruce Springsteen Live!, the Grammy Museum invites fans to stop by on Springsteen’s 73rd birthday, Sept. 23, to share their stories in person and on camera and wish Bruce a happy birthday. This will be the rare opportunity for Angelenos to reflect on the old Stadium with good memories.
