Want to own a print of a super-rare photo of Bruce Springsteen, performing at the Harvard Square Theater? It’s going to cost you a lot.
Springsteen performed the seminal show in Cambridge on May 9, 1974, where famed rock writer Jon Landau saw him and penned the now-famous line, “I saw rock and roll’s future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen.”
Landau was of course right about what he saw: a year before Born to Run, Springsteen flashed the greatness that would soon blossom in the mid-to-late 1970s.
Photographer Barry Schneier was in attendance and snapped a photo of Springsteen sitting at the piano, which you can see at Gallery591974.com. The shot is going up for sale, with no more than 200 copies of the limited-edition print being prepped for distribution.
The photo won’t come cheap, though: 90 copies will be sold for $5,000 each. Five more will be donated to non-profit organizations, and five others will be given away lottery-style. You can enter to win a copy at the Gallery591974 Facebook page.
Ready to drop a pretty penny for a once-in-a-lifetime shot? Or are you feeling lucky?
