I went to Hyde Park Calling with James, Sam and Kent last Sun:
In typical UK fashion, it piised down.
Basically, "Hyde Park Calling" is where they turn part of Hyde Park into a music festival.
We turned up to see Jet at 17:40, followed by Chris Cornell at 18:45 and the headline act, Aerosmith, at 20:45.
Jet were pretty cool:
Although they could've played more of their older stuff. There was a giant willie in the crowd to keep us entertained as well:
Here's Sam doing her "I don't care, it's all Rock 'n Roll to me, baby" face:
Here's Kent and James with their Rock 'n Roll faces:
More entertainment was provided watching Kent try and put his overpriced poncho on:
You can now see why he was on the set of Lord of the Rings:
Chris Cornell (from such little known bands as Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog) was simply fantastic, he's a bl00dy legend as far as I'm concerned and listening to him play pushed him way up on Tony's cool scale (don't get too bigger head, Chris):
Imagine singing to this crowd:
He also brought his two kids out on the stage, which was very cool:
Listening to Chris sing "Black Hole Sun" and "Hunger Strike" was probably the highlight for me and judging from the noise the crowd made, for a lot of other people...
