Outstanding from start to finish
19 December 2001 | by (Manchester, NH) – See all my reviews

From the reunion of the Who, to Billy Joel performing Miami 2017, to Adam Sandler's Opera Man, to getting to see Hillary Clinton booed off the stage -- this was an outstanding concert. It took place in Madison Square Garden, and the audience was comprised of NYPD, FDNY, POPD officers, and other rescue workers. It was absolutely inspiring to see such talented musicians expressing their appreciation for their hard work. To the best of my knowledge, the original 5 hour VH1 concert was never rebroadcast. CBS aired a truncated version the following week, but I certainly hope that if and when Viacomm releases it onto DVD, it is released in its full format.

This is a must see concert, if you can find it.
