Bruce Springsteen fans that are looking for yet another reason to check out Blinded By The Light in its opening weekend just got their wish.

Per Varietya sneak peek to Western Stars, the performance film of Springsteen’s latest solo album of the same title, will play before showings of Blinded By The Light, the film based on the Sarfraz Manzoor memoir Greetings from Bury Park that chronicles the impact of Springsteen’s music on his life. Warner Bros., the studio behind the distribution of Blinded By The Light, bought the global rights to Western Stars, which will be receiving a theatrical release later this fall.

Western Stars will be making its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which runs September 5-15. Directed by Springsteen and Thom Zimny, who also directed the super-successful Springsteen On Broadway, Western Stars clocks in at 83 and is described as an “intimate and personal concert film” where Springsteen “muses on life, rock, and the American dream.” An exact TIFF premiere date will be announced on August 20.
