Bruce Springsteen has headlined Hard Rock Calling without any interruptions.

The star - whose last appearance at the annual festival in its previous venue was cut off before the end - played for more than three hours.

The gig, once at Hyde Park, has been relocated to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, where thousands of fans gathered for the weekend.

Backed by his E Street Band, Springsteen headlined the last night and played fan favourites including Atlantic City, Born In The USA, Glory Days and Dancing In The Dark.

The last time he played Hard Rock he was joined by Sir Paul McCartney but the pair were silenced after defying a curfew.

On Sunday night there was no McCartney and no broken curfew as Springsteen ran through some of the highlights from his decades-long career.
