‘SPRINGSTEEN & I’ was inspired by Scott Free London’s critically acclaimed feature film ‘Life in a Day’. It is produced by Ridley Scott Associates’ companies Scott Free and Black Dog Films and directed by Baillie Walsh (best known for 2008’s ‘Flashbacks of a Fool’ starring Daniel Craig) and executive produced by Ridley Scott. Springsteen's team has been incredibly generous with unseen archival footage and concert material.
Ridley Scott commented “This beautifully crafted film provides a unique insight into the powerful bond between a recording artist and those who connect so profoundly with his music.”
With a juggernaut career spanning five decades, this year is the 40th anniversary of Springsteen’s debut LP ‘Greetings from Asbury Park’ and 2014 marks the 30th year since the release of seminal rock and roll album ‘Born in the USA’.
Currently in the midst of a 34-date ‘Wrecking Ball’ world tour, Springsteen and his E Street Band play across Europe from May through July 2013.
