Hulu and Disney+ will launch ‘Road Diary: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’ in October this year—though an exact date was not established.

The documentary will offer the most in-depth look at the creation of Springsteen’s legendary live performances with behind-the-scenes footage across the 2023-2024 world tour. ‘Road Diary: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’ opens a door on Springsteen’s creative process for fans around the world by sharing fly-on-the-wall footage of band rehearsals and special moments backstage.

Conversations with Springsteen himself pepper the story, interspersed with rare archival clips of The E Street Band, underscoring themes of life, loss, mortality and community. The documentary will serve as a never-before-seen chapter in the autobiographical series that spans Springsteen’s memoir, Born to Run, Springsteen on Broadway, and the films Western Stars and Letter to You.

‘Road Diary’ was directed by Springsteen’s longtime collaborator Thom Zimny (Western Stars, The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash, Springsteen on Broadway, Willie Nelson & Family, Sl) and produced by Zminy, Jon Landau, Bruce Springsteen, Adrienne Gerard and Sean Stuart.

The film begins with a one-of-a-kind look at the band’s preparation process, following them from their earliest rehearsals in Red Bank, New Jersey to live performances for thousands of fans across the world.

Fans get a chance to experience professionally shot footage from the 2023-2024 tour for the first time ever—while hearing firsthand from band members about performing on stage with Springsteen. Members of The E Street Band discuss how they’ve kept the magic of performing live on stage with Springsteen over the years.

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band capped the first 2024 leg of their world tour in April, performing 60 different songs through 11 performances. The band is in the middle of playing 25 shows throughout Europe this spring and summer—returning to North America for more dates from August to November.
