After more than a year, Bruce Springsteen did the last performance of his Springsteen on Broadway show Saturday night.
Before taking the stage he said, "I want to thank all of our co-workers, friends and fans for making my year on Broadway one of the most creatively memorable of my life. To have come this far then be able to share my music with you the way we have this year has meant a great great deal to me... A special thanks to my lovely wife Patti for lending her beautiful voice and presence to our work together. She's been a nightly inspiration. Our closing is bittersweet but more adventures await down the road. I'll see you there."
For the final show, Springsteen extended the stories behind the songs and explained that doing the show allowed him to revisit his late father and fallen E Street Band members Danny Federici and Clarence Clemons.
Springsteen on Broadway started out as a two-hour play, but the final performance clocked in at two hours and 50 minutes. Tickets for the last night sold for upwards of $40,000 on secondary ticket sites.
The show opened on October 3rd, 2017 and ran for 236 performances. The average ticket price was $511, for a total box office haul of $106.8 million.
A film of the show premiered yesterday on Netflix, which paid $20 million for the rights.
