Thank you for posting this.

Dave Grohl has been posting little hints all day about playing in NY tonight, but I was busy and unable to research it past his tweets.

Recording now. Rep!

All the old farts can still bring it. When the great bands and rockers of the 1960s/70s finally can't do it anymore, its hard to imagine who of the 'younger' bands today can fill their shoes and have that 'living legend' status--and still deliver.

Dylan, if you get directv rebroadcast coming up on channel 340.

My later classic rock favorites Bruce and Billy were great. Thought everybody was pretty good. Used to hate Kayne, don't anymore but that was a pretty awkward performance. Not really the crowd for him. I guess he was there more to bring in certain viewers. Not in love with McCartney's new stuff but Blackbird is/was awesome. Cool seeing Nirvana, even though they were big just slightly before I was old enough to appreciate them.

Seemed a slam dunk that Bruce, Bon Jovi, and Joel would step up during all of this but still cool that they have as enthusiastically as they have.

I was really hoping for a Hey Jude finale. That would've been a perfect ending with everybody singing along.

I agree & it sure the hell would have been cool doing it when they brought out all those people on stage with Paul. I almost thought that is what they were going to do.

My mother got offered tickets for $500. Probably nosebleeds. She is in love with Bon Jovi but that is a little pricey for her. Wonder what front row seats cost.

NY1 News reported more than $30 million was raised from ticket sales - The seating capacity for concerts at MSG is 20,000 (could be wrong) - depending on location of the seats, tickets had to cost at least a couple of thousand per seat - which may explain why it was designed for an older crowd.

Tomorrow it is business as usual - L.A. Lakers @ N.Y. Knicks

Maybe that explains the "lame white crowd" for an audience. I mean the crowd acted less enthused as I expected it to be for a rock concert.

They did it last year during a Waters concert in London. This is probably as good as you're going to get.

That gave me chills. Thanks for posting

I thought it was a bit insensitive on Jon Bon Jovi to sing "Who says you can't go home"
