Springsteen exhibit coming to Philadelphia in February

    Bruce Springsteen, always singing the tune of the American people, will be honored this winter in the National Constitution Center’s From Asbury Park to the Promised Land exhibit.

    The NCC is the first and only venue to host the exhibit from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, which will run Feb. 17 to Sept. 23, 2012.

    “We are certain that our visitors, from the most devoted Springsteen fans to those experiencing his music for the first time, will be inspired by his commitment to illuminating the struggles and triumphs of ‘We the People,” NCC CEO David Eisner said in a release.

    Visitors will be able to check out family photo, handwritten lyrics, the late Clarence Clemons’ sax and the Boss’ 1960 Corvette among the listening and viewing stations set up throughout the exhibit.

    Tickets are $24.50 – less than a Springsteen concert ticket. The only thing missing is a karaoke machine where visitors can belt out their best “Glory Days” rendition. Or maybe something else. The NCC wants to know what your favorite Springsteen jam is.
