Concertgoers were in for quite the surprise when Bruce Springsteen brought Sir Paul McCartney on stage during his finale in London’s Hyde Park. The legendary rockers performed several Beatles hits together, but their performance was cut short when concert organizers suddenly pulled the plug.
What gives? Apparently Springsteen was three hours into his performance before McCartney joined him on stage. The pair was shut down when they exceeded the noise curfew previously set in place and after authorities received complaints from a neighboring community.
London mayor Boris Johnson commented on the situation, saying, "If they had called me, my answer would have been to jam on in the name of the Lord!"
Amen to that, Boris. Watch the video above for more on this legendary collaboration, and to see one E Street Band member's reaction to the unexpected interruption.
