Details

The story how the power of music can unite a people divided. The seaside resort of Asbury Park suffered a race riot on Independence Day, 1970, crippling the town for the next 45 years and reducing it to a state of urban blight. The riot destroyed the fabled Westside jazz and blues scene but from the flames of the burning city emerged Bruce Springsteen and the fabled Jersey sound.
“Asbury Park” returns Asbury denizens Springsteen, Steve Van Zandt and Southside Johnny Lyon to the legendary Upstage, the psychedelic after hours club where they got their start. Springsteen reunites with his earliest band members to play an exclusive 45 min set at the now legendary concert ands trade guitar licks with the future of music in Asbury - a group of 11-year-old rockers who prove the best days for the town may just lie ahead.
