PHILADELPHIA, PA - Just in time for summer travel, fans of Bruce Springsteen staying at Loews Philadelphia Hotel and reserving the "Bruce Springsteen Exhibit Package" will enjoy the celebration of freedom at the National Constitution Center. From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen - never before seen outside of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum - features more than 150 artifacts of the award-winning New Jersey rocker.

Located only six blocks from the hotel, the National Constitution Center is the first and only nonprofit, nonpartisan institution devoted to the U.S. Constitution and features exhibits that explore the story of "We the People." Springsteen’s distinctive brand of blue collar rock gives voice to the struggles of the working class, veterans, immigrants and other groups whose unique stories add to the definitions of "We the People."

The Loews Philadelphia "Bruce Springsteen Exhibit Package" includes:

  • Overnight deluxe accommodations for two
  • Two tickets to From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen at the National Constitution Center
  • Admission to the Center’s main exhibition, The Story of We the People, and viewing of the award-winning Freedom Rising, a 360-degree theatrical production at the National Constitution Center.

    This exhibition, From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen, takes a comprehensive look at Springsteen’s catalog, from such early bands such as Child, the Castiles and Steel Mill through his work with the E Street Band and as a solo artist.

    Visitors will have the opportunity to view more than 150 artifacts, including the Fender Esquire guitar from the cover of Born to Run, the outfit Springsteen wore on the cover of Born in the U.S.A., numerous handwritten lyric manuscripts, posters from all phases of his career, and various honors including his Academy Award for the song "Streets of Philadelphia."

    "From Asbury Park to the Promised Land offers a unique perspective on our First Amendment freedoms, the meaning of the American dream and the role of artists in politics and protest," said National Constitution Center President and CEO David Eisner. "And, of course, Bruce Springsteen strikes an even deeper chord here in Philly, where the love of Bruce runs almost as deep as the love of freedom."


    Available through September 3, the "Bruce Springsteen Exhibit Package" price starts at $179 based upon double occupancy. Rate is subject to availability and change and is not available to groups of ten or more.

    The 581-room luxury Loews Philadelphia hotel is a combination of historic architecture and modern amenities in the landmark PSFS building.
