No, its the guy that gave John Mellancamp the lifetime achievment award at the MTV awards? He's in dazed and confused, you know the guy with blonde hair a bit older.

whta's weird is that in the end credits it said Carson Daly was the Voice Over artist. That was definitely not Carson Daly.

Woody Harrelson was at the first Slane concert... My girfriend and I saw him in the background when Red Hot... played... So it could be...

When I saw the whole Slane thing on IMAX, they had an Irish commentator, I think they should have kept him, it added so much more exciting local flavour.

He did the voice over for VH1's Legends, right?

So how else was what you saw different from what was on the Friday special?

Well, they left out the whole part with all the people arriving, the stuff about the concerts selling out, the local flavour stuff, and they also left out a couple of songs (Angel of Harlem and Stuck coming immediately to mind, but there may be more). I think they may have also left out a couple of interview bits too.

I guess it's understandable what with the time constraints of TV, but it's too bad really.
