The first half of the show the ushers were telling us to put away the cameras, by the time Dennis Hopper started taking pictures, it was a free for all

That video is so awesome, thanks! Do you have any more?


I pretty much resigned myself to only seeing two shows this leg, and that really didn't bother me (hoping for many more next year, though), but for this, I'm incredibly envious of all of you who were able to attend!

Diane, it was indeed a pleasure finally meeting you. Dazz, it's always great to catch up with you in the city! Perhaps next time we can hang out longer.

It really was an amazing show...one of those once in a lifetime events for me, since I don't typically have the money to afford star-studded events at Carnegie Hall!

I can't believe I witnessed The Virgin Freaking Prunes with my own eyes!!!! I can only imagine how avant garde their music was at the time...though, if they were still together now, I think they'd have quite a following. They really rocked the house.

U2 was surprisingly not the highlight of the night for me. I appreciated that on the poster they advertised themselves as individuals, not as the band. This was definitely special event of talented artist celebrating their beloved friend. I was really looking forward to seeing the Wainwrights, and natch, Andrea Corr (girlcrush). I was pleasantly surprised with Shane MacGowan's performance (I hadn't listened to The Pogues much before, now I'm very much interested...what a voice!). Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance. I've never heard any of her songs in their entirety, but last night I realized she has an incredible voice and is a very talented woman (though she hides it well with some of the soundbytes I've heard )

I flipped my shit, however, when Lou Reed took the stage. When they played Sweet Jane, I stood up for the first time that whole night, was clapping, dancing, and throwing my hands in the air. I love that man. This is my 2nd time seeing him this year (saw him at Lolla) and DAMN he can rock!!

What a night! I'm so glad I was able to partake in such an event. Cari and I decided to be glamorous that night, I mean why not? It's friggin' CARNEGIE HALL! We felt like rockstars ourselves It was super fun. So many legends in one night. I wish I could've taken pictures and video, but unfortunately I was right next to one of the ushers stands. No matter though, I'll forever carry this experience in my heart.

ETA: I also wanted to say that I really appreciated Gavin Friday's work after last night. Beforehand, I was only familiar with a handful of songs. He's done collaborations with many artists for awhile now, and it was really cool hearing his other works.

Mia, that is a wonderful review. I love that this show exposed me to artists I never would have heard otherwise. I got a musical education, AND I got to watch Bono and his friends up close! It doesn't get better than that!!!
