Bruce Springsteen Hits The Hard Rock in London Once Again

Posted: Jul. 2nd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

It wouldn't be a Hard Rock Calling Festival in London if Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band weren't hosting it, but thankfully the group agreed to kick off the festival for the second year in a move that's quickly becoming a tradition. With performances ranging the merely epic to the absolutely awe inspiring, the entire affair was a smashing success.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were in London again on Sunday, this time headlining the Hard Rock Calling Festival for the second straight year.

Last year's Hard Rock show was when the power was cut on Bruce and the band right after they were joined by Paul McCartney for a couple of songs. This year, the festival moved from Hyde Park to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, right next to the stadium where last the Summer Olympics were held in 2012. There were no reported curfew problems this year.

It was Bruce's second show in London in 15 days. He and the E Street Band played Wembley Stadium on June 15.
