Police cut power at Springsteen and McCartney concertJuly 16, 2012
Fans and spectators are riled up after the power at a Bruce Springsteen gig in Hyde Park was turned off before he - and special guest Paul McCartney - were done performing.
Orgainisers and authorities pulled the plug on the stage's after 3 hours of Springsteen's performance saying he had reached his time limit. The Boss and Macca were forced to leave the stage in silence, without giving a proper thank you or goodbye to the 65,000 strong audience.
Springsteen is known for his long performances and throughout the night had a few special guest performances from Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and fellow US singer John Fogerty, as well was the ex-Beatle Paul McCartney who finished off the night with covers of Beatles' hits I Saw Her Standing There and Twist and Shout.
Steven Van Zandt, guitarist with Springsteen's E Street Band, posted a few snidde remarks about the behaviour of the police on Twitter after the show.
"Seriously, when did England become a police state?" he wrote.
"It didn't ruin the great night. But when I'm jamming with McCartney don't bug me!"
I'm sorry but I have to be honest I'm pissed. Like I said, it didn't ruin the great night. But when I'm jamming with McCartney don't bug me!
