Back for some unfinished business, Bruce Sprinsteen & The E Street Band will bring The Wrecking Ball Tour to Hard Rock Calling. Expect a high energy all out rock performance that goes down in history with some of their biggest and most loved hits plus a few surprises and special guests.

"Last year, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band made international news and history when their Hard Rock Calling encore with Sir Paul McCartney was unceremoniously cut short due to a noise curfew at Hyde Park. This summer we are giving Bruce and the band the opportunity to finish what they started and make history again with celebrated performance at Hard Rock Calling," said CEO of Hard Rock International, Hamish Dodds. "Additionally, we are looking forward to christening Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with a Saturday lineup of some of Britain's hottest talent, including headliner Kasabian, Paul Weller and more."
 
Earlier this year it was announced that Hard Rock Calling will be held at a brand new home, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London providing a dazzling open-air live music experience this summer. It offers a chance to experience the excitement of watching the best in popular music at one of London's most iconic sites.
