Historical concert when the world changed forever!
2 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching this when it was broadcast live, and was fortunate to get a copy of this on DVD not soon after 9/11. I get this out about once a year and watch it in its entirety. Not just a stellar lineup of some of the finest musicians of the time, but most importantly a tribute to the fallen of that horrible day, and those that survived. The firemen, police and all first responders, and just normal everyday folks, who so selflessly put their lives on the line amidst the chaos and horror. You can't help but watch this and feel absolute pride and hope in the human spirit when it is so displayed in humility and grace, and love for one another. Highly recommend obtaining a copy of this if you can find one. In light of all the truths (and untruths) that we have learned of since that horrible day 9/11, the message is still clear and timeless....we must NEVER forget. This concert is important to watch and re-watch as a reminder of that. Jim Carrey has a speech in here that is wonderful. The Who tear down the joint. David Bowie intro will bring you to tears. It was an incredible event.
