Hard Rock Calling: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band + The Black Crowes + Alabama Shakes + The Temperance Movement + Deaf Havana + Negramaro + Josh Doyle + Cody ChesnuTT + Josh Record + Crowns + Flamin' Groovies
Two of the world's biggest acts are ready to rock at Hard Rock Calling, held at the brand new iconic home of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
Kicking off what will be the first show at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London since the London 2012 Games, one of Britain's biggest and most contemporary bands Kasabian are announced in a UK festival exclusive, making their debut appearance at Hard Rock Calling on Saturday 29th June.
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band are confirmed for Sunday 30th June in what marks a third epic headline performance at the festival. Back for some unfinished business, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will bring The Wrecking Ball Tour to Hard Rock Calling. Expect a high energy all out rock performance that goes down in history with some of their biggest and most loved hits plus a few surprises and special guests.
Over 30 years at the top of the rock tree has established 'The Boss' as one of America's musical legends. Despite being best known for his massively popular eighties albums such as 'Born In The USA' and 'Nebraska', he has developed a more mature sound in the last few years with hits like 'The Streets Of Philadelphia' and 'The Ghost Of Tom Joad'. His album 'The Rising', penned as a response to the terrorist attacks on New York, has catapulted him back into the limelight and proves that Bruce was 'Born To Run'.

With the release of their debut album ('Shake Your Money Maker') in 1990, The Black Crowes embarked on a career that would see them bring Stonesy blues rock and classic rock n roll swagger back into fashion. The winning formula has seen them sell millions of records and play to millions of people, delivering strong songwriting and attitude-laden live performances with a passion.
The Black Crowes tour dates
From Athens, AL, four-piece Brittany Howard, Heath Fogg, Zac Cockrell and Steve Johnson were previously known as The Shakes.
Alabama Shakes tour dates
The Temperance Movement are a five piece blues-drenched, soulful, loud and explosive rock and roll band drawing on their combined influences and experience to turn heads in the music industries on both sides of the Atlantic.
Formed between London and Glasgow in the summer of 2011, five like minded musicians decided to take a break from their touring with other acts to write, play and record music influenced by the records which first made them passionate about rock and roll.
The Temperance Movement tour dates
Screamo, post-hardcore and southern rock from Kings Lynn. Nominated for 2010’s Kerrang! Best British Newcomer Award, Deaf Havana are one of the UK's most exciting bands.
Deaf Havana tour dates
Josh Doyle is a British-American songwriter and musician who was the lead singer and guitarist for British punk-pop band Dum Dums.

The soul troubadour was universally acclaimed for his edgy, sprawling Shortlist Prize nominated 2002 debut, 'The Headphone Masterpiece', with his frank, socially conscious songs setting the bar for what modern soul music can look and sound like.
Cody ChesnuTT tour dates
Brixton based singer-songwriter Josh Record, a unique talent whose star is on the ascent, steps out of his bedroom and into the spotlight this spring with his self-penned, self-produced debut EP 'Bones'. The 25-year-old took full charge of the process from lyric writing to production duties. All done from the comfort of his South London bedroom, 'Bones' is much more than a statement of intent, it's an extension of Josh's entire being.

Growing up in Cornwall, it wasn't all surfing and pasties for these boys. At the same time as songwriter Bill Jefferson was learning old Cornish tunes, the rest were playing in various punk bands in their local town. It was only when combining these two wild elements that Crowns found their rousing sound and began to write the salty, sing-a-long anthems that make up their set today.
Crowns tour dates
The Cyril Jordan, Chris Wilson, George Alexander line-up that rocked the UK, Europe and the US from 1971–1980 are back in action, with the addition of Victor Penalosa on drums. Fans have been delighted with what is being called "a dream set list", including original songs the band has never performed before onstage.
Newcomers are asking, "Why haven't I ever heard of this group?" It's hard to say just why the group hasn't gotten the attention they deserve (at least in the USA) but they're back to give everyone another chance at hearing and seeing just why those in the know consider them to be one of the greatest rock n' roll bands ever.
