About

From Wikipedia:

Calling Festival (formerly Hyde Park Calling and Hard Rock Calling) was an annual music festival, formerly held in Hyde Park, London, from 2006 until 2012, and from 2013 in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. The music played is primarily rock music, and various performers, including The Killers, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, The Who, Bon Jovi, Roger Waters (with Nick Mason), The Police, Aerosmith, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen have played at the event. The festival was organised by Hard Rock Cafe and Live Nation. In September 2013, Hard Rock International announced that they would no longer be sponsoring the festival, however Live Nation confirmed that the event would return in 2014 under the name of Calling Festival at the Clapham Common.

From Whom The Bell Tells, July 14, 2010:

The following night Macca did it all over again in London’s Hyde Park, his first-ever stand-alone show at the world-famous park. The guest list alone read like a whos who of Britains A-list, with the likes of Chris Martin and Led Zeppelins John Paul Jones watching from the side of the stage, with David Walliams, Stephen Merchant and Kaiser Chiefs singer Ricky Wilson in the audience. Ricky even emailed us afterwards to say it was the best performance had ever seen from Paul, while GQs editor Dylan Jones and The Sun’s editor Dominic Mohan both also emailing to sing Pauls praises. In fact, the Hyde Park audience must have been the only people smiling in Britain that night, as the England football team dismally crashed out of the World Cup the same evening. We were all too busy singing along to care. As the Evening Standard put it, who better than Paul McCartney, the national songsmith, to remind us the English do some things well?

It wasn’t just those in the crowd that got the chance to enjoy Maccas classic set on the night either. Sixteen tracks from the show were broadcast on the Born HIV Free YouTube channel after Paul was asked to appear by Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Over 1.2 million people watched the show online and Bruni-Sarkozy later told the newsroom, “I am thrilled with the great success of the concert broadcast on the Born HIV Free channel”. Paul McCartney was enthusiastic about participating in the campaign, and he showed his support by giving 16 of his best tracks to be visible on the channel.
