I thought the concert, but it was not as great as I expected it to be.

good show.

Highlights: Christ Martin of course, Bruce, Bon Jovi, Paulvana, Alicia Keys *surprisingly*

Boring/Bad: The Who. 7 songs? really. so boring. the middle of Kanye's set.

best moment by far was Sandler. that was frackin hilarious

I think we heard many songs that we didn't need to hear last night. That have been heard too many times in the past.

Are you listening U2? No more War Horses!

It's a charity concert. They want to get as many people as possible to tune in and to pledge. If the bands were playing deep album cuts the common person hasn't heard of then a lot of people would turn the channel. Like Bob Geldof told the artists at Live Aid, "play the hits".

The Who was boring but Chris Martin wasn't? The Who had by far the biggest crowd reaction. The last song Martin did on the piano was the definition of boring.

I thought Chris sounded good on VLV and Losing my Religion, didn't watch UATW. I'm not a huge fan of The Who, but I really enjoyed them. They did get the biggest reaction, and Baba O'Riley was one of the highlights of the show for me.

if the who were on for 3/4 songs it would have been good. but I was falling asleep by the end of it. and if I remember correctly *which I'm not really sure about* other acts had a  bigger reaction.

only good performance was Baba O' Reilly which is one of the only Who songs I like.



On another note I found it hilarious that Bruce was playing in front of a bunch of suits last night

Billy Joel and The Who were both tremendous. I like how Billy changed the words to Miami 2017 (which is my fav Billy Joel song).

Neither am I, but he got such a good response from the crowd.

He also followed that horrible comedian and Kanye West

Alicia Keys = goddess.

I hope I don't get flamed for this.

But I do think Alicia Keys' "Empire State Of Mind 2" is better than U2's "New York" as a song that represents what the city is all about.

Cheers,

J


I don't think u2's New York is meant to represent the city as a whole, but rather tell the story of one persons experience here in NYC. I also think its one of u2's finest moments musically and lyrically.

The problem with U2's 'New York' (and ATYCLB in general) is that the live version is just so much better that it renders the studio recording obsolete.

Was I the only one who thought Bon Jovi playing "Who Says You Can't Go Home" kind of an bad song choice given the situation?

While I do agree that the live recordings are superior (that's usually the case with U2),  I wouldn't go as far as to say the studio recordings are obsolete.

For me that's not usually the case at all, I usually view U2's live output as just different interpretations of great songs, no better or worse, equally valid and the desire to listen to either is just dependent on mood. I dislike the slick, polished sound of ATYCLB immensely, so on stage was where it came alive to my ears.
