Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band To Release Live London Calling DVD On June 22

Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band will release their third official live concert DVD (following 2001's Live In New York City and 2003's Live In Barcelona) on June 22, according to a report published today by Backstreets Magazine.

London Calling: Live In Hyde Park was recorded last year at London's Hard Rock Calling festival during their 2009 Working On A Dream tour. Portions of the concert have previously been seen on a television broadcast by the Fuse Network. This DVD will feature the complete performance for the first time, with the lone exception of "Rosalita," which has been dropped from the DVD (although it was shown during the Fuse broadcast).

The DVD however does include a standout version of "Jungleland" seen on that show, as well as the rest of the set including raucous cover versions of The Rascals' "Good Lovin'," Eddie Floyd's "Raise Your Hand," and the Clash's "London Calling" (which opens the show).

London Calling: Live In Hyde Park was overseen by Springsteen's usual team of producer/editor Thom Zimmy and director Chris Hilson, with audio mixing by Bob Clearmountain. It will be available in both single-disc Blu-ray and double-disc DVD versions. The set will also include two bonus performances: "Wrecking Ball" from Giants Stadium, and "The River" from England's Glastonbury Festival.

While this is the third officially released live concert DVD from Springsteen and the E Street Band, the Born To Run 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition also features a 1975 performance from London's Hammersmith Odeon. Springsteen has also previously released live DVDs of a VH1 Storytellers performance as well as the 2007 Live In Dublin set with the Seeger Sessions Band.

Bruce Springsteen is widely expected to release a deluxe remastered boxed set edition of his 1978 album Darkness On The Edge Of Town later this year.
