About Hard Rock Calling 2012

In the summer of 2012, Hard Rock Calling once again lived up to its reputation as the premier outdoor rock festival of the summer. Hard Rock Calling takes place annually in London's Hyde Park, and this year's headliners were Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, and Soundgarden. There were many other great musicians on the bill; Christina Perri, John Fogerty, Tom Morello, Lady Antebellum, Allison Krauss, Iggy & the Stooges, and the Punch Brothers. In true Hard Rock Calling fashion, there was a visit from a special guest; the one and only Paul McCartney. Sir Paul came out to join The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, for his encore of two legendary Beatles songs, "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Twist & Shout". It was all over the news that during the performance of "Twist & Shout" the speakers were turned off because the show went past the London curfew of 10:30pm. However, we have some great news for all of you diehard fans out there: we kept the cameras rolling, and the audio recording, and we're the only ones who can bring you the entire "Twist & Shout" performance in its entirety. Enjoy!
