Bruce Springsteen truly is a man of the people. The New Jersey idol has made his 2009 filmed concert London Calling: Live in Hyde Park free to stream on YouTube and Apple Music amid the coronavirus crisis.
The announcement was made via Springsteen’s Twitter account Tuesday, encouraging listeners to “practice social distancing” by watching the exciting concert film from home.
London Calling: Live in Hyde Park also features the iconic E Street Band, who have been major collaborators with Springsteen throughout his musical career. The concert film shows Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band performing the much-adored songs “Born to Run,” “Dancing in the Dark” and “No Surrender,” as well as a cover of The Clash’s “London Calling,” among many other gems.
