The Boss is Silenced!

Fans attending Bruce Springsteen’s concert in London’s Hyde Park on Saturday never got to hear the end of the show because concert organizers turned all the microphones off.

As part of Springsteen’s Hard Rock Calling concert series, 76,000 people braved the London elements to see Springsteen and his special guest stars in concert. Springsteen’s last guest was Paul McCartney and as they were singing “Twist and Shout,” the concert went silent. The band had gone past Hyde Park’s 10:30 p.m. curfew and subsequently were unplugged.

Hyde Park spans 350 acres and is located next to wealthy London neighborhoods. The occupants of these neighborhoods are none too happy with the late night noise and mayhem that accompany these concerts.

It seems as though guitar player Steven Van Zandt was none too happy about the curfew. He wrote on Twitter:

“English cops may be the only individuals left on earth that wouldn’t want to hear one more from Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney! On a Saturday night! Who were we disturbing? There’s no grudges to be held. Just feel bad for our great fans. … It’s some City Council stupid rule. Seriously, when did England become a police state Is there just too much fun in the world?”

Rules are rules and they are not meant to be broken, at least not for The Boss in London’s Hyde Park.
