London Calling: Live at Hyde Park is a powerhouse 2009 concert from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band — and now, joining the growing list of musicians and entertainers making special arrangements for coronavirus pandemic quarantine entertainment innovation, The Boss has put the entire marathon concert video up for free streaming.

Available on YouTube or Apple Music, the announcement came with a message from the Bruce Springsteen social media channels:

The entire mega-concert is available in playlist format on YouTube, beginning with a rousing rendition of the Clash’s “London Calling.” In all, the band slams through 27 songs on the evening:

“London Calling”
“She’s the One”
“Outlaw Pete”
“Out in the Street”
“Working on a Dream”
“Johnny 99”
“Good Lovin'”
“Bobby Jean”
“No Surrender”
“Waitin’ on a Sunny Day”
“The Promised Land”
“Racing in the Street”
“Radio Nowhere”
“Lonesome Day”
“The Rising”
“Born to Run”
“Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)”
“Hard Times (Come Again No More)”
“American Land”
“Glory Days”
“Dancing in the Dark”

This is the latest example of musicians making special arrangements due to the confusing and tense nature of our current reality, one in which tours have been canceled, bars and restaurants closed, supermarkets ransacked and confusion abound as global concern over the pandemic continues to dominate and change our way of life.

In addition to Rolling Stone launching a special live series with Brian Wilson on Tuesday,  Coldplay’s Chris MartinU2’s BonoBen Gibbard of Death Cab for CutieMichael Stipe of R.E.M., the Dropkick Murphys, John Legend and others are among those who’ve adopted this method of keeping the music alive — and keeping souls enriched a bit, as we all navigate the difficulty of the situation before us.
