| Quite Simply One Of The Best Concerts Ever Put Together
I was 5 years old when the 9/11 attacks took place. Of course, 9 and a half years later, Osama Bin Laden was put to justice. Looking back on it, my parents told me that there was a really cool concert taking place a few weeks after the terrorist attacks. They ordered it on Amazon for my birthday earlier this year on May 3rd. This concert was incredible in every sense of the word. The whole intention of this concert was the main thing about it, but it just happens to also have tons of quality stuff on it.

There are many amazing musical performances. The Who were one of the highlights of the night. They put an unbelievable amount of energy and passion into the concert they put on. They chose just the right songs: "Who Are You", "Baba O'Riley", "Behind Blue Eyes", and "Won't Get Fooled Again".

Paul McCartney also put on a great show. The song "Freedom" that he wrote and performed that night is the definition of an anthem. We also get to hear "I'm Down", "Yesterday", and "Let It Be."

The Rolling Stones were as great as always, performing "Salt of The Earth" and "Miss You." Bon Jovi, James Taylor, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Billy Joel, and Five For Fighting also delivered.

There are plenty of entertaining segments. I loved the Adam Sandler "Operaman" segment. Most of Sandler's material is rather juvenile, but on that night, he hit all the right funny bones. Also, Howard Stern's antics actually felt appropriate for once. I do find the appearance by Will Ferrell's George Bush impersonation to be rather questionable, though.

We also get appearances by Harrison Ford, Michael J. Fox, Jim Carrey, Halle Berry, David Spade, Hilary Swank, Robert DeNiro, The Clintons, and many more. Of course, we also get to see videos giving tribute to New York City.

I could not have asked for a better birthday present. The show as a whole was simply impeccable. The effort they put into this was very evident, giving the people of New York City the condolences and proper respect that they deserve. Get this show now!

RATING: A+
