The same day Justin Bieber rubbed London fans the wrong way for showing up to a concert two hours late and never apologizing, Bruce Springsteen is promising fans from the UK city that he will return.
Springsteen recently announced he will headline the London Hard Rock Calling festival a year after authorities stopped his duet with Paul McCartney for violating the venue's curfew. (Even that sentence peeves me off thinking about it!) 'The Boss' and the E Street Band will be back at the event playing in the city's Olympic Park this coming June.
Olympic Park, the site of the Summer games, was chosen as the event's new location after friction between music fans and Hyde Park neighborhood's residents. By the time Springsteen welcomed Paul McCartney to the stage last July, the American hard rocker had already played past the 10:30 p.m. concert curfew by a half an hour—prompting residents to complain about the late night noise. McCartney and Springsteen did fit in Beatles hits "I Saw Her Standing There," and "Twist and Shout," however, before officials pulled the plug on the performance and forced the rockers to leave the stage in silence.
