The 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert (2009)

**** (out of 4)

Fans of rock and roll are certainly going to be in for a treat as this concert, recorded over two days in New York City, has enough legends for five shows. You know you're in for a treat when Jerry Lee Lewis starts off rocking a version of "Great Balls of Fire" and the show closes with Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel doing "Born to Run." In between we get countless acts doing their own songs as well as covers. Artists include Metallica with Ozzy Osbourne, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Mick Jagger, Aretha Franklin, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Simon and Garfunkel, U2, Stevie Wonder, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Jackson Brown, Smokey Robinson, Sting and various others. If you're a fan of rock then I don't see how you could be disappointed here. Yes, there are a few people (Bob Dylan) that should have been included but even those people are still mentioned throughout the show. The greatest thing going here is getting to see the various acts performing together and this here is where all the fun comes from. Seeing John Fogerty and Springsteen take on "Oh, Pretty Woman" was a blast. At over 5-hours with commercials, this here is certainly an epic rock show.
