Hard Rock Calling 2012

Hyde Park was muddy but the organisers brought in truck loads of mulch to fill in the puddles. Most of us attending the concert were prepared with rain gear and ready to face what the London weather could throw at was a sight to remember!
The weather did not seem to discourage any of the ticket holders...who would miss the chance to see Lady Antbellum, John Fogerty, and the man himself - Bruce Springsteen!
It's made the headlines of every society paper and is the topic of conversation on every talk radio station...Sir Paul McCartney joined Bruce on stage for a few familiar tunes and at 10:40 someone pulled the plug! The sound went dead! The band continued to play but we could not hear a thing.....curfew was 10:30....please, on a Saturday night in London...most clubs don't even open until after midnight!
No worries, we still had a fabulous time hanging with friends, listening to Bruce on another magical summer evening in London!

Love the wellies! The union jack designs are a must. I think I'd have a whole closet just of rain boots!

What a scandal ~ the pulling the plug on Sir Paul and The Boss. Reminds me of something mom might do when we were past our curfew!
