Gaslight Anthem will be opening for headliner Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band on The Hard Rock Calling 2009 Festival. The Boss' and the E Street Band will perform their first-ever UK festival appearance outside of the United States, at Hard Rock Calling 2009 in Hyde Park, London on June 28th.

Gaslight's Brian Fallon commented:

It's been a dream of mine to play with Bruce and the E Street Band. It's truly an honour, and on top of that for it to be in London, one of my favourite cities anywhere, it's a dream. Plus, it's two Jersey shore locals playing some rock and roll.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, February 13.
