Gurinder Chadha's new film Blinded by the Light is about a British teen of Pakistani descent whose life is transformed by the music of Bruce Springsteen in the '80s. The film had its premiere, appropriately, in Asbury Park, NJ on Wednesday night (8/7). Springsteen attended the premiere, walking in arm-in-arm with both his wife, Patti Scialfa, and Chadha. There was an after-party at The where Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes performed and, surprise surprise, Bruce joined them for part of their set, playing on “Talk to Me,” Wilson Pickett's “634-5789,” “Sherry Darling” and “Having a Party.”  You can watch video below.

Blinded by the Light is based on Greetings From Bury Park, the 2007 memoir by journalist Sarfraz Manzoor and is in theaters on August 16. The soundtrack features 12 Springsteen songs and will be out August 9. You can watch the trailer for the film below.

Bruce just released his new solo album Western Stars and is promising a new E Street Band record and 2020 tour. There's also currently a Springsteen exhibit in his hometown of Freehold, NJ.
