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.
Springsteen is headling the second day of the London Hard Rock Calling festival on June 30th. Other performing acts include Alabama Shakes, the Black Crowes, Kasabian and Paul Weller. Concert organizers Live Nation have exclusive rights to Olympic Park this summer and will be holding a series of concerts at the venue.
What do you think of the new location for the London Hard Rock Calling Festival? Did Hyde Park neighborhood residents have a right to be upset with the festival's late hour performance between Springsteen and McCartney? Let us know how you feel about Springsteen's decision to come back and last year's controversial performance.
