|Captured in London at the Hard Rock Calling Festival on June 28, 2009 in HD, the 172-minute film documents 27 tracks
of live Springsteen that begin in daylight and progress through a gorgeous sunset into night.|
London Calling: Live In Hyde Park conveys both the experience of being on stage and the vast crowd experience of the festival environment. Viewers are able to see Springsteen spontaneously directing the E Street Band and shaping the show as it evolves. The set list spans from “Born To Run” era to “Working On a Dream” and includes rare covers and fan favorites. Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem joins the band as a guest vocalist on Springsteen’s own “No Surrender.” The concert earned rave reviews. The London Times called it “epic” and “a revved-up, three hour powerdrive through Springsteen’s America.” The Independent concurred: “Springsteen’s intensity was staggering from first powerful vocal to final thrashed-out chord.”
GRAMMY® and Emmy Award®-winning producer and editor Thom Zimny and director Chris Hilson, both members of Springsteen’s video team dating back over a decade, oversaw the film. Audio was mixed by Bob Clearmountain.
Editor's NoteThis documentary captures a nearly three-hour show Bruce Springsteen performed at Hyde Park. The setlist includes a number of The Boss' classics along with covers of The Clash's "London Calling," The Yung Rascals' "Good Lovin'," and Jimmy Cliff's "Trapped."

Here is why. London Calling: Live In Hyde Park may not feature the greatest fans' dream setlist ever. Heck, it doesn't even come from the tour that topped most of the recent hardcore wish lists (that distinction probably belongs to the 2007-08 tour behind the Magic album). ...read the full review|
