SPRINGSTEEN 'London Calling – Live In Hyde Park'

Available on DVD and Blu-Ray

On June 21st,
Columbia Records will release Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band's
'London Calling: Live In Hyde Park' concert film on one Blu-Ray disc and as a
two DVD set. Captured in London at the Hard Rock Calling Festival on June 28,
2009 in HD, the 163-minute film documents 26 tracks of live Springsteen that
begin in daylight and progress through a gorgeous sunset into night.

The set
list spans from 'Born To Run' era to 'Working On a Dream' and includes rare
covers such as The Clash's 'London Calling', Jimmy Cliff's 'Trapped', The Young
Rascals' 'Good Lovin'', and Eddie Floyd's 'Raise Your Hand'. Springsteen also
performs fan favorite 'Hard Times (Come Again No More)', written by Stephen
Foster in 1854. 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 power
drive through Springsteen¹s America." The Independent concurred, "He awed the
50,000-strong crowds drenched in sweat by the second number, tossing his guitars
to the roadies with the vigour of a frontman a third of his age and jogging down
a walkway to meet his fans and take their requests, Springsteen's intensity was
staggering from first powerful vocal to final thrashed-out chord."

material includes stunning footage of 'The River' from Glastonbury on 27th June
2009; and the full music video for 'Wrecking Ball', filmed at New Jersey's
Giants Stadium.
