The Boss is in town today to headline the second day of the Hard Rock Calling Festival at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band is set to take to the main stage, the Bandstand, just after 7pm this evening.
Other artists performing at the Bandstand from 1pm today include The Black Crowes and Alabama Shakes while a variety of acts will take to the two other stages.
Last night rockers Kasabian got the Park buzzing on what was a beautiful summer evening with a festival atmosphere reminiscent of last summer’s Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Playing a variety of some of their biggest hits such as Fire, Days are Forgetten and Reason is Treason accompanied by women playing the violin and a trumpet the band showed the breath of their music from raw electronic rock music to slower acoustic pieces.
But lead singer Tom Meighan finished the evening off beautifully singing the Beatles track She Loves Me unaccompanied by any instruments, showing off the vocal range of his voice.
Tonight’s concert is set to finish around 11pm.
