Bruce Springsteen To Headline Hard Rock Calling Festival In London

Bruce Springsteen will headline the London Hard Rock Calling festival this year despite getting the plug pulled on him at last year's event by authorities.

Bruce and the E Street Band take the stage on June 30. Other acts confirmed for the fest include co-headliner Kasabian, and supporting acts Paul Weller, Klaxons, the Cribs, Miles Kane, and the Black Crowes.

This year the festival is moving to a new location, London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The 560-acre site of the 2012 Summer Games will now be used as a concert venue.

Bruce's set at last year's festival saw Paul McCartney join the band on stage for two songs. Macca would have probably continued to play with the band, but that's when the police pulled the plug. It was shortly after 11 p.m., roughly half an hour past the 10:30pm noise curfew.

Tickets for this year's Hard Rock Calling festival will go on sale on Friday.
