Bruce Springsteen to receive his own online museum
An online museum of Bruce Springsteen memorabilia is set to launch in June to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the singer’s record Born In The USA.
BlindedByTheLight.com will feature over 300 objects, ranging from concert posters to handwritten lyrics – with more items to be added in the future. The online museum will offer contest prizes every six months, with website creator Michael Crane offering signed album artwork as the prize for the first contest, reports Rolling Stone.
Springsteen is currently on tour in America. Recently, he performed live for the first time a song he first wrote 40 years ago, "Linda Let Me Be the One", a rarity from the Born To Run sessions, during his show at the BB&T Center, Sunrise, Florida.
He also released a four-track EP, "American Beauty", for Record Store Day. You can watch the video for the title track here.
