Following their triumphant performance at this year’s Superbowl, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have been announced as headliners for Hard Rock Calling at London’s Hyde Park.
Taking place on June 27 and 28 the first announced night will also see performances from the Dave Matthews Band and up-and-coming New Jersey boys The Gaslight Anthem with a full supporting line-up still to be announced.
“Obviously it’s been a dream of mine to play with Bruce and the E Street Band,” said The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon. “It’s truly an honour, and on top of that for it to be in London, one of my favourite cities anywhere, it’s a dream. Plus, it’s two Jersey shore locals playing some rock and roll.”
After the critical acclaim that greeted this year’s No. 1 charting ‘Working On A Dream’ album, the appearance in June will be The Boss’ first-ever festival gig outside of the US.
Past Hard Rock Callings have seen Eric Clapton, The Who, Aerosmith, Roger Waters and most recently The Police play the capital.
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (February 13).
