Hard Rock Calling is a music festival that routinely provides fans with some of the best entertainment in the business. This year, tens of thousands of fans answered the call to endure the hazy summer heat of London.
On Sunday, Paul McCartney entertained the huge crowds for almost three hours. And one day earlier, musical legend Stevie Wonder took the stage treating his fans to an array of his hits.
The former Beatle was the headliner of the event on Sunday night that was attended by approximately 50,000 fans.
McCartney played a few Beatles songs and also Wings' numbers like "Jet" during his marathon set.

Other acts who performed at the three-day event in Hyde Park included Stevie Wonder, who headlined on Saturday.
Stevie Wonder, musician, said, "I think having something like a celebration in Hyde Park with all kinds of music, all kinds of good food I'm sure, all kinds of musicians, various cultures of people. ... It's all good. Let's celebrate."
Corrine Bailey Rae, Jamiroquai, James Morrison plus Crosby, Stills, and Nash also appeared.
And Morrison was really excited to be on the same bill as one of his musical heroes.
James Morrison, musician, said, "I still can't believe that I'm playing a gig with Stevie Wonder. Even last year playing with Bruce Springsteen was pretty crazy for me but Stevie Wonder kind of tips the boat for me above Bruce Springsteen. He's my number one artist of all time. I love his voice more than anyone else's and I just think he's genius."
Wonder dedicated the evening to the late Michael Jackson, who died on June the 25th last year. The multi-Grammy award winning artist, Wonder performed an array of his hits including: "Superstition," "Living For The City," and "My Cherie Amour."
