Bruce Springsteen, shown in “Springsteen on Broadway.”

Bruce Springsteen has announced a Dec. 14 release date for Springsteen on Broadway, the audio version of his mostly one-man show (Patti Scialfa is featured on two songs) that has been running for more than a year. It will be available as two CDs or four vinyl albums, as well as digitally.

The last show is on Dec. 15, and the film version, also titled “Springsteen on Broadway,” debuts on Netflix Dec. 16 at 12:01 a.m. PT (3:01 a.m. ET).

The album (to be released on the Columbia label) and the Netflix special feature the same performances. To pre-order the album, visit smarturl.it/springsteenbway.
