The Best Rock Concert Ever.
10 May 2011 | by (Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

Nobody has reviewed this?!? Whoa.... Let me just say that this is 4 hours of insanely good Rock & Roll music. Crosby, Stills & Nash - Almost Cut My Hair; Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground/Roxanne with Sting; Simon & Garfunkel - The Sounds of Silence; Metallica - Enter Sandman; U2 - Gimme Shelter with Mick Jagger, Fergie and will.i.am; Jeff Beck - Let Me Love You Baby with Buddy Guy; Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band - The Ghost of Tom Joad with Tom Morello; and sooooooooo much more. And if you don't know any of those names but Rock & Roll has piqued your curiosity then this is step one for you. Enjoy. I sure did, and more than once.
