Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have revealed more support performers for their upcoming BST Hyde Park shows. The freshly confirmed acts will join The Boss for his forthcoming London gigs on Thursday, July 6 and Saturday, July 8. They will also be joined by previously announced special guests The Chicks, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls — who will perform during the first show — and James Bay, who will open for the rock legend on Saturday.
The announcement includes the names of 13 new musicians, including The Coronas, STONE, Picture Parlour, First Time Flyers, Theo Lawrence, and Attawalpa, who will all perform at the first performance. Brittney Spencer, Pa Sheehy, Kezia Gill, and Kelly McGrath are among the new names joining the ‘Born In The USA’ icon for the second of two shows. Sam Barber, an American singer-songwriter, and Irish indie-rock duo Kingfishr will also perform on Saturday. They will all perform with other performers on the BST Hyde Park performance lineup, including previously confirmed headliners P!nk (June 24 and 25) and Guns N’ Roses (June 30).
Take That (July 1), BLACKPINK (July 2), and Billy Joel (July 7) are among the other headliners. Lana Del Rey was also the final 2023 headlining act to be announced, and she will perform on the final day of the London concert series (Sunday, July 9).The BST Hyde Park gigs are part of Bruce Springsteen’s and the E Street Band’s massive globe tour. The gigs, which are now in progress, began on May 30 with a performance at Edinburgh’s BT Murrayfield Stadium and will conclude tonight (June 16) at Birmingham’s Villa Park. Tickets for the remaining UK shows may be purchased here.
Springsteen’s first tour with the complete E Street Band since 2017, with US dates having recently concluded. Several trips across Europe are also scheduled; a complete list of upcoming events may be seen on his website. Last month, the Boss made headlines ahead of his three Dublin performances when he was caught enjoying some Irish hospitality at The Burrow pub in Rathangan, county Kildare, and even led an impromptu singing to his 1984 song ‘My Hometown’. Meanwhile, a Bruce Springsteen memorial day is planned for later this year in New Jersey. Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy declared Bruce Springsteen Day for September 23 at the inaugural American Music Honors, which were hosted in April at the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music.
