The London authorities comply in every detail of the rules governing and taught who's boss in this place when, about to finish the concert, Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney were shushed by cutting the electrical connection of the stage. Thus brusque, both singers could not finish the show and without even saying goodbye to those who gathered there.After a concert of 3 hours and 65,000 people as devoted audience with The Boss and Paul McCartney, after having sung a few songs from The Beatles to encourage even more, a final apotheosis. The songs were "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Twist and Shout", suddenly, and half of the last song, everything was stopped and the speakers stopped working. Bruce had not even noticed and continued singing until she could find her voice was not listening. The punishment of all this was that it was half an hour of the agreement with the organization of the concert.
During the concert, The Boss, accompanied always com E Street Band, also invited to play two songs to Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, and singer John Fogerty.
Steven Van Zandt, guitarist in the E Stret Band on Twitter said: "Since when England has become a police state?". He added that "they had not screwed up all night, but I can not stop the feet when suddenly with McCartney".
Also on Twitter comedian and actor Stephen Merchant: "I am ashamed to be British at this time, Springsteen and McCartney playing 'Twist & Shout' in Hyde Park and the board removed the power due to the curfew".
With political character, the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, also regretted the decision. "This action appears excessive. This not occur during the Olympics", said on LBC radio. But the fact has already occurred but are still two weeks to the Olympic event. So it can happen again next time with another concert. Next on tap is Paul Simon.
Bruce Springsteen will be very difficult to exceed three hours and forty-eight-minute concert, the longest of his career, offered on 18 June at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid.
