Great performances, but misdirected.
20 October 2003 | by CurlyGirl64See all my reviews

I have actually viewed this concert several times. Each of the performances is very good, even, surprisingly enough, Kevin Spacey's. The covers are faithfully and imaginatively done. While the Moby/Rufus Wainwright/Sean Lennon cover of "Across the Universe" would have been arguably better if Moby hadn't tried to sing bass, it was still enjoyable.

The thing that irked me about this concert was the fact that it occurred just after 09/11. Instead of putting the focus on John Lennon's life and works (the original intent) it became a fundraising concert for one of the post-9/11 charities. The name escapes me. Not that there is a thing in the world wrong with raising funds for these charities, but if the concert is supposed to be a John Lennon tribute concert, it should be that.
