Bruce Springsteen is coming to Netflix. 

The streaming giant announced that while Springsteen on Broadway is closing at the end of the year, fans will be able to get some Springsteen on the streaming platform. 

The sold-out Broadway show is coming to Netflix with a special of the same name, the day the music icon will take to the stage for the last time after 236 sold-out shows at the Jujamcyn’s Walter Kerr Theatre. 

“We are thrilled to bring Bruce Springsteen — a master storyteller, humanitarian and voice of the everyman — to Netflix in this historic one-man show,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.” This groundbreaking experience defies the boundaries of theater, concerts, and film and will give our global audience an intimate look at one of the biggest cultural icons of our time.”

“The purpose of the film is to bring this incredibly intimate show to Bruce’s entire audience intact and complete,” said Springsteen manager Jon Landau. “In addition to its many other virtues, Netflix has provided for a simultaneous worldwide release which is particularly important for our massive international audience. Ted Sarandos and the entire company’s support has been a perfect match for Bruce’s personal commitment to the filmed version of ‘Springsteen on Broadway.’ “

The two-hour show featured Springsteen performing and spinning yarns from his 2016 biography Born to Run.
