Video of the week: The Wrestler

While on tour in Ireland, I received a call from my old friend Mickey Rourke. He talked about the film he was working on, said it was a picture that meant a great deal to him, and asked if I might have a song. He explained the character to me. I always felt there was a place where the best of our work crossed over, so I told him I’d give it a shot. I wrote the song quickly, recorded it with Toby Scott, and Mickey and I picked up a couple of Golden Globes.

Hunter Of Invisible Game

A hearty thank you to our friends and fans who supported us on the High Hopes leg of our World Tour. Our South African and Australian/New Zealand shows were a particular highlight, but a big shout out has to go to our American fans who brought us down the home stretch.

The past 2 plus years and nearly 170 shows have been a life changer. Thanks to you, we have dwelled deep within the transformative power of rock n’ roll. You’ve helped us bring a new and revitalized E St. Band into being. We take this break with a sense of joy, renewed purpose and filled with the spirit to bring you our best in the future. We’ve still got a few surprises for you.

For a long part of the year, Thom Zimny and I have been talking about shooting a short film for “Hunter Of Invisible Game.” We’ve finally got the job done, and we think it’s one of our best. Thanks Thom for the hard work and brotherly collaboration. You and your crew bring it all. And to all of you out there in E St. Nation, we hope you enjoy! See ya up the road.

– Bruce Springsteen
