Bruce Springsteen once again showed the London crowd why he’s a superstar as he belted out his best shows during his concert in Hype Park Saturday night. And to top off his extravagant performance, the showman even invited Sir Paul McCartney onstage for a finale.
The veteran rockers performed onstage together, much to the delight of the 76,000 viewers gathered in the Park. They sang I Saw Her Standing There as well as Twist and Shout.
But right in the middle of the performance, the music died as the organisers cut the power from their microphones, rendering the two rock legends unable to deliver their final song.
The organisers had reportedly pulled the plug after the concert had gone over its allotted time and was already violating noise regulations. The show, which was supposed to end at 10:30 pm, ended at almost 11:00 pm.
With their microphones cut off, the two stars were not even able to bid their audience goodbye and had to simply walk off the stage silently.
The crowd, which was extremely confused by the incident, soon became angry and, as expected, took to social media to blast the event’s organisers. Fans called the incident various names, among them being “rock and roll sacrilege”.
Members of the E-street Band who performed with Springsteen said, “We break curfews in every country but only English cops needs to punish us by not letting us leave until the entire crowd goes.”
