Last night, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrated its 25th Anniversary at Madison Square Garden. I attended the show, and certainly witnessed one of the finest concerts ever!
It started at 7:30PM and ended around 1:30AM. The show opened with a video collage of all the inductees. There was some great footage of George Harrison and Paul McCartney. Jerry Lee Lewis opened the show, and then Crosby, Stills and Nash came on with special guests Bonnie Raitt and Apple Records Alumni James Taylor. Jackson Browne then came on. Next on was Paul Simon who did a solo set. He did an incredible tribute to his good friend George Harrison by bringing back Crosby, Stills and Nash back to the stage to perform "Here Comes The Sun" with him. He also performed "The Wanderer" with special guest Dion.
Throughout the night, special past events were mentioned that took place in The Garden, and "The Concert For Bangla Desh" was mentioned as the first Charity Concert. After Paul Simon's set, Simon & Garfunkel played together to an incredible standing ovation. Then Stevie Wonder took the stage with guests Sting, John Legend, B.B. King,Smokey Robinson, and Jeff Beck. After Stevies set, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band took the stage with special guests John Fogerty, Sam Moore, Darlene Love, and Tom Morello. The Special guest was Billy Joel. Bruce called it "The Tunnel and Bridge Summit". The last song of the night where everyone took the stage was You're Love (Higher & Higher).
Tonight will be Part 2 of the concert, with special guests U2, Metallica, Ray Davies of The Kinks and many many more.
