Springsteen rocks Rome film fest

Bruce Springsteen rocked the Rome Film Festival when he showed up for the screening of a documentary on his famous 1978 album "Darkness on the Edge of Town."

Hundreds of fans gathered Monday night to greet the Boss as he walked on the red carpet.

Organizers had to scramble with a surge in demand for tickets when the news spread days ago that Springsteen would attend the event.

The documentary "The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town" features contemporary interviews with Springsteen and his band along with rehearsal and studio footage as they made the 1978 record. The documentary by Thom Zimny premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
