A 24-hour Bruce Springsteen-athon is taking place this weekend

24 hours of nothing but The Boss, all for a good cause...

The organisers of the world’s first club night to play nothing but Bruce Springsteen have announced that they’ll be playing a virtual 24-hour DJ set to raise money for charity.

Hannah Summers and Jon Beck, the brains behind the Hungry Heart club night, will spin 24 hours of nothing but The Boss this Saturday (May 2), in a bid to raise £10,000 for Childline, Trussell Trust, Barts Trust, Age UK and Hospice UK.

Taking place from 1PM, the duo will divide the event into a selection of festival-style sets, including Springsteen’s best known hits, rarities and covers of his back catalogue.

In return for a donation, Summers and Beck say that fans will receive shout outs, song requests and even the chance to dish out marriage proposals.

Earlier this month, the duo also masterminded an Oasis house party – with fans listening to an eclectic selection of the band’s tunes across 90 minutes.
