Wembley Stadium Boss Backs Bruce Springsteen Shut-down In Hyde Park
Frayling wrote "Paul's right. Nobody likes enforcing curfews. We'd all rather the artist play on. But we have to for future shows and licences. And we could do with artists appreciating that a little more. It is the Hse who are being disingenuous here. Live Nation explained fairly that it was to allow fans to get home safely. Having a 60k crowd cross Park Lane mixing with traffic would not be ideal. So it was 'in the interests of the public's health and safety' to shut the gig off. Fair comment from LN (Live Nation)."
Springsteen himself decided to comment on the incident via the medium of comedy. When he played Dublin earlier in the week, he and Steve Van Zandt wheeled a generator onstage and played 'Twist & Shout,' the Beatles song that they had been performing with Sir Paul McCartney when the plug was pulled in Hyde Park.
