‘Springsteen & I’ is a new documentary celebrating the career of The Boss. It’s made by fans for fans and we’ve got a selection of exclusive images from the legendary Hyde Park concert with Paul McCartney in 2012.
Director Baillie Walsh has also made films about Oasis, Chemical Brothers and Massive Attack.
At the Hard Rock Calling gig at Hyde Park, Springsteen played a whopping 29 songs until the police pulled the plug.
Macca and Springsteen were playing ‘Twist And Shout’ when the plug was pulled, following a cover of Beatles song ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.
Breaking the curfew wasn’t looked upon kindly by the council and led to ire and recriminations from the E Street Band and some of the 80,000 fans.
Steve Van Zandt wrote: “One of the great gigs ever in my opinion. But seriously, when did England become a police state?
Boris Johnson also got involved calling Englad a “police state”. To be fair, three and a half hours is a long time by anyone’s standards.
The new film collects fan-created content from all over the world and relives various concerts from the Boss, as well as Hyde Park 2012.
Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine was brought on at Hyde Park for a trio of ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’, ‘The Rising’ and ‘Land of Hope and Dreams’.
Patti Smith’s ‘Because The Night’ was also covered.
‘Springsteen & I’ will play in 50 countries from July 22. You can find out more about the film here.
The film includes five tracks from the Hyde Park gig for fans’ viewing pleasure.
