Bruce Springsteen And Paul McCartney Perform Together At London's Hard Rock Calling…And Get Cut Off!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TruePaul McCartneyBruce Springsteen

It doesn't matter if this was a once in lifetime occasion!

In London, a curfew MEANS a curfew!

And unfortunately for Bruce Springsteen, who was joined on stage by none other than Sir Paul McCartney during his headlining performance at London's Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park last night, he learned that the hard way!

The duo, who are living legends in their own rights respectively, managed to ROCK OUT two INCREDIBLE renditiions of I Saw Her Standing There and Twist and Shout together before concert organizers pulled the plug…which meant they weren't even allowed to thank the crowd!

LAME!

Ch-ch-ch-check it all go down (above)!

Although the Boss nor the former Beatle have spoken out about it all, the E Street Band's Steven Van Zandt took to Twitter afterwards to blow off some steam:

We certainly can't blame him!

ESPECIALLY since they were willing to do one more number!

And now, we'll sadly never know what that was!

Gah! But hey!

Obviously, it was still an AH-MAZING show that will definitely be one for the history books, and we're just glad that they got to at least perform together for a little bit!

No point in focusing on the negative! What's done is done!

Thanks for still rocking, you two!

    What "curfew" are you talking about? Don't talk nonsense.
    They ran 1 hour late over their performance time, and since this was in an open area in the city centre, they had to finish it. It was the end of the show after all, which they did finished. After that people continued to party elsewhere.

    How annoying, as a fellow Brit I know how stupid the police and laws can be - I'm sure everyone enjoyed themselves though ;) I went to Bruce's Manchester gig and it was AMAZING!

    Perez, I think you got a little bit confused here.
    When Steven Van Zandt referred to a curfew he was talking about the band itself having to wait for the crowd to leave before they can leave - which make sense.
    As for the show, it was great but ran far overtime. Since many of people travelled from outside London, they had to let them go before the trains stop and young people might get stuck in the city centre. It's only a responsible thing to do. Whoever wants to party on is free of course to stay if they want to.

    Rules are rules and celebrities aren't above the law. A while back, the city implemented a limit on the number of shows as well as institute noise levels because there are people who live in that area. Bruce & Paul aren't special. Shame for the concert-goers, but the performers should have fit their show into the approved time limit.

    Possible Theory:
    Katie Holmes did it, because she’s free and
    can do whatever the hell she damn pleases.

    Gosh I would love to have seen that concert, even if it was only two songs.

    They shoulda let 'em play all f#@kin' night if they wanted to. This isn't an every night or once a week or once a month or once a year event. If neightbors had problems with the "noise" there's something they invented called "earplugs" for sleeping (I use them as my partner snores). If people couldn't figure out that they had to leave to get home on public transport…stuff happens. Call mom and dad to get picked up, or get money for a cab, or walk around all nite till the subways start up again, or whatever. For the cleanup crew, it's overtime…again, won't happen again or often. Rock on B & P!

    I was there.
    you can't really say it got cut short when he was already overtime. earlier in the show he added in another song for a guy in the crowd who had a sign telling him to play it. if he hadn't of done that he could have finished without being cut. Sure it sucks bruce and Paul got turned off but there's reasons why things have time limits & the safety of the 80,000 people who were there attending. You can say things about going all night or whatever. But yo aren't the ones who would have to deal with the thousands upon thousand of people stranded it would be the police. The concert hosts finished when they needed to, to make sure people were able to get home. People travelled from all over the country for it not just people in London who can take a cab home
