Fucking ‘ell! There is naught as queer of councillors with a small amount of power.
Bruce Springsteen had been waiting for this moment for a long time. “I gotta tell you,” he said to the 65,000-strong crowd, “I’ve been trying to do this for 50 years.” For the finale of his headline slot in London’s Hyde Park on Saturday, he’d arranged a very special treat: An onstage collaboration with Beatles legend Paul McCartney.
But the rock megastar hadn’t banked on the local London council deciding to show him who was boss.
At the climax of his three-hour set, Springsteen and McCartney, backed by the E Street Band and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, played a storming rendition of “I Saw Her Standing There” to a rapturous crowd. Springsteen’s delight was palpable: He grinned throughout, his face lit up like a child with a super-sized Christmas gift.
The supergroup then segued into a sizzling version of “Twist and Shout” — but as the night peaked against a backdrop of fireworks, a drably dressed man with sensible hair could be seen waving frantically at the back of the stage, indicating the rock legends’ time was drawing to a close.

Not official but all but.
The stage musical adaptation of “The Bodyguard,” the 1992 film that starred late Grammy winner Whitney Houston, will open in London this November at the Adelphi Theatre, according to the Daily Mail.
Thea Sharrock is directing the stage property that will star Tony Award-winning Aida and Lion King actress Heather Headley, who will take on the central role of pop singer Rachel Marron.
Michael Harrison and David Ian are producing The Bodyguard, which has a book by Alexander Dinelaris (Zanna, Don’t!). The musical will include the hits form the film, including “I Will Always Love You,” “I Have Nothing” and “Run to You,” as well as a host of songs from Houston’s catalogue.
LONDONERS ARE WORSE. AND KIWIS IN NZ ARE JUST AS BAD. WHAT THE HELL IS THE HERALD DOING A STORY ON ONE WOWZER IN LONDON WHO SOUNDS LIKE A PEARL CLUTCHING FORMER WELLINGTON HOMO TO ME. THIS IS NOT A FUCKING STORY, GRANNY HERALD – THIS IS HOW KIWIS BEHAVE. WELL, HOW MEN BEHAVE EVERYWHERE.
The antics of some Kiwis on a Waitangi Day pub crawl through London have disgusted a fellow expat, who has complained to the Prime Minister and High Commissioner and says the misbehaviour has shamed New Zealand.
Dylan Clements says he saw Kiwis urinating on footpaths and historic monuments, including Westminster Abbey, as they took part in the annual Waitangi Day Circle Line Pub Crawl on Saturday.
