Bruce Springsteen's new concert documentary, Western Stars, is set to premiere in theaters on October 25th, according to The film, which will have to Fathom Events screenings on October 19th and 23rd, will have its world premiere next week, on September 12th, at the Toronto Film Festival.

The press release for the movie reads in part:

Touching on themes of love and loss, loneliness and family and the inexorable passage of time, the documentary film evokes the American West -- both the mythic and the hardscrabble -- weaving archival footage and Springsteen's personal narration with song to tell the story of Western Stars.

Western Stars offers fans the world over their only opportunity to see Springsteen perform all 13 songs on the album, backed up by a band and a full orchestra, under the cathedral ceiling of his historic nearly 100-year-old barn.

Bruce Springsteen admits that well over 50 years into his performing career, whether it's a festival crowd of 200,000 or a club gig in front of 75 people, hitting the stage has never failed to excite and inspire him: "It's like you come out and you fall in love every night in some way. When you're doing it right, it's like a rebirth, y'know? It's not a repetition -- it's a renewal -- so that involves something happening every night for the first time. And, amazingly enough, it's like your first kiss in that there's something in playing. There were thousands of other times, but still when you come out there's some element of the first time that's very, very present. And it keeps you very open and present and it's what people feel."
