SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY will launch simultaneously on Netflix in over 190 countries on December 16 at 8am (Irish time) the day after the show's actual sold-out run concludes on Broadway on December 15.

In addition to Zimny, the Netflix original special is produced by the same team that produced "Springsteen On Broadway", including Springsteen manager Jon Landau, Springsteen tour director George Travis, and Landau Management partner Barbara Carr. "That's simply a crime against humanity, as far as I'm concerned", the rocker, 69, said in the article, published online Tuesday.

"This is what I've presented to you all these years as my long and noisy prayer, as my magic trick". "It's just an ugly, bad message". It was initially set to run for eight weeks, but due to demand its run has been extended three times, and the final 236 performance of the show will be on 15 December - and Netflix will be there.

Springsteen, who uses his music to voice his opinions, has been an outspoken critic of Trump's immigration policies.

The singer adds: "He (Trump) has forsaken a lot of these things, and it's affected him".

Springsteen said that although he has never been hospitalised, he thinks maybe he should have been, reports cnn.com. "He's deeply damaged at his core".

Nonetheless, The Boss is fairly optimistic about the U.S.' system of checks and balances being able to withstand Trumpism in the end, although he is anxious about the U.S.' deep and bitter political divisions. "The founding fathers were pretty good at confronting their fears and the fears of the country. We are completely testing that theory at this very moment".

Speaking about the breakdowns, Bruce Springsteen also told the magazine: "All I do know is, as we age, the weight of our unsorted baggage becomes heavier ... much heavier". "That worries me. Because the partisanship and the country is split down the middle is something that's gravely unsafe". His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications.
