Dame Emma Thompson appeared to be having the time of her life as she joined her husband Greg Wise at British Summertime in Hyde Park for the Bruce Springsteen show.

The actress, 64, showcased her eclectic mix of animated dance moves as she belted out to some of the rocker’s, 73, best hits.

Dame Emma merrily threw her hands in the air and twisted from side to side before clapping along with the audience to his impressive 29-song set.

She sported a casual figure for the afternoon, wearing a half buttoned white flowy shirt and chic multi coloured headband.

She wore her white locks loose, which became slightly dishevelled as she worked up a sweat with her energetic moves.

Dame Emma seemed in good spirits as she wrapped her arms around her Strictly star husband, 57.

The couple, who have been married for 20 years, could be seen laughing and chatting as they joined a host of other a-listers on a private VIP balcony.

Dancing beside them, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Leslie Mann and Tim Robbins appeared to be having the time of their lives.  

This is not the first time Dame Emma has garnered attention for her impressive dance moves.

In November 2021, she went viral after being spotted pulling some particularly energetic dance moves as Adele wowed a crowd of friends, fans, and celebrities with her An Audience With Adele concert at the London Palladium.

Dame Emma threw her hands in the air and shook her hips before instructing the rest of the audience to get on their feet as Adele sang Rolling In The Deep. 

Fans quickly flooded to Twitter to show their appreciation for her lively display. 

‘Emma Thompson is having the night of her life,’ wrote one viewer, while another added: ‘Emma Thompson [is] being Adele’s hype woman tonight.’

Springsteen took to the stage at British Summertime in Hyde Park on Saturday as he played his second, and final night. 

Ahead of his performance the rocker was mobbed by fans outside his hotel as they scrambled to catch a glimpse of him.

The New Jersey rocker was joined by his famous E Street Band, along with support acts James Bay, The Coronas, Kingfisher and First Time Flyers. 

His energetic three-hour set has been lauded by fans and critics as an ‘unrelenting rock spectacular’ following his first gig on Thursday. 

Just hours before, crowds lined the streets by Claridge’s in London as Bruce departed the Mayfair establishment and made his way to the festival.

Bruce could be seen as he hopped into a waiting car, shielding his eyes with a pair of black sunglasses. 

He wore a white shirt underneath a navy blue jacket before changing into a black shirt and jeans for his performance at BST. 

On Thursday, the musician rolled back the years with an impressive 29-song set in front of a star-studded audience, that included big names Stella McCartney, Kate Hudson and Jon Bon Jovi.

Bruce kicked off his set alongside his famous E Street Band with an energetic rendition of No Surrender, before moving onto Ghosts, Prove It All Night and Letter To You.

The New Jersey rocker showed no signs of slowing down as he delivered a medley of his biggest hits for the huge crowd, along with support acts The Chicks, Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, The Coronas, STONE, Picture Parlour, First Time Flyers, Theo Lawrence and Attawalpa.

Later in the show, Bruce reflected on the ‘greatest adventure of his life’ when he joined his first band in the mid-60s with George Theiss, who hired the teenage guitarist into the Castiles. 

He went onto recall being at Theiss’ bedside 50 years later when he died of cancer, telling the crowd: ‘I realised his passing would leave me the last living member of that first small band of guys who got together in that little house.

‘Death is like you’re standing on the railroads tracks with an oncoming train bearing down upon you, but it brings a certain clarity of thought and a purpose and a meaning…’

Bruce continued: ‘Death’s final and lasting gift to all of us is an expanded vision of this life, of how important it is to seize the day whenever you can.’

He went onto dedicate Last Man Standing to his late bandmate, saying: ‘George passed away and shortly after I wrote this song and it’s just about the passions you follow as kids, not knowing where they’re going to lead you and how at 15 its all hellos and later on there’s a lot more hard goodbyes.

‘So be good to yourself and the ones that you love and to this world that we live in.’

Bruce also took a moment to poke fun at being cut off early during his last BST set in 2012, which was cut short after he and guest Paul McCartney ran over curfew.

After launching into an encore that included Born In The USA and Born To Run, he delivered a rendition of Glory Days, before turning to his guitarist Steven van Zandt and telling him: ‘It’s time to go home. I’m telling you they are going to pull the f***ing plug again!’

Van Zandt replied, in jest: ‘F*** ’em!’ before Bruce launched into another medley of hits Dancing in the Dark and Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out.

In 2012, Bruce was headling the Hard Rock Calling event with Paul, organisers decided to pull the plug in the interests of public safety.

Organisers Live Nation said in a statement at the time: ‘The curfew is laid down by the authorities in the interest of the public’s health and safety. 

‘Road closures around Hard Park are put in place at specific times to make sure everyone can exit the area safely.’
