Blinded By The Light Releases Across The UK

Saturday 10th August 2019

Bruce Springsteen hit the red carpet at the US premiere of Blinded By The Light on Tuesday 7th August in his hometown of Asbury Park, New Jersey. The rock legend attended with his wife, Patti Scialfa, alongside director, Gurinder Chadha, Sarfraz Manzoor, Viveik Kalra, Aaron Phagura and British Asian actress, Jameela Jalil. The premiere was held at the Paramount Theatre on the city's boardwalk.

Springsteen later performed four songs at Asbury's Convention Hall at the official afterparty.

Released in the UK by Entertainment One, Blinded By The Light is set in 1987, during the austere days of Thatcher's Britain. The film is a joyous, coming-of-age story about a British Asian teenager who learns to live life, understand his family and find his own voice through the words and music of Bruce Springsteen. The film is inspired by British journalist Sarfraz Manzoor's memoir, "Greetings From Bury Park". Blinded By The Light also features music from Oscar-winning music-maker, AR Rahman.
