How many times in your life will you hear The Boss and Paul McCartney sing “Twist and shout”….probably not very many and Saturday night in London, 65,000 fans were singing along when officials cut the power and ended the show.
Bruce, who told the crowd he had been “trying to do this for 50 years” hit the stage at Hyde Park, fans were overjoyed when McCartney wound up on stage for a version of “I saw her standing there.”
According to Westminster officials, Bruce had been told that the concert needed to end by 10:15 pm. The pair were still jamming at 10:40 when the concert abrutply ended. Fans were upset at the abrupt ending, “Ashamed to be British right now. Springsteen and McCartney playing ‘Twist & Shout’ in Hyde Park and council pulled the plug cos of curfew,” tweeted actor and comedian Stephen Merchant.
