If you follow my twitter feed, you'll know that I was at the first concert celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The listed artists were as follows:

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash and Friends

  • Paul Simon

  • Simon and Garfunkel

  • Stevie Wonder

  • Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band



The guests that were brought in on top of this ranged from James Taylor to Sting to BB King. Everyone was on another list of special guests. Except for the the one last guest that Bruce brought out - Billy Joel.

The concert ran from 7:30 (although I think they started a little late - we got there around 8:15, and CSN was still playing) till 1:30. Each artist played a large selection of their own music, plus a lot of tribute music to other artists in the Hall of Fame.

Coolest (and most touching) moments:

  • James Taylor singing "Love the One You're With"

  • Stevie Wonder breaking down during "The Way You Make Me Feel"

  • Sting all of a sudden appearing on stage with Stevie Wonder and jamming out a gorgeous bass line

  • Bruce describing how New Jersey and Long Island were going to reconnect at the Garden and bringing Billy Joel out on stage

  • Bruce singing "Only the Good Die Young" with Billy Joel



And now it's time to pass out.
