Thread Name: Concert for George Harrison DVD
Subject: RE: Concert for George Harrison DVD
I have to agree that this was one of the most moving tribute concerts I've ever seen. I saw the theatrical version on public TV and sat through it all the way, which I honestly don't usually do, particularly with TV concerts. I was blown away by the obvious attention to detail and the love of the music shown by the musicians and singers. I noted that McCartney did his numbers and then sat in on piano for following numbers, instead of doing his star turn and leaving. I loved the slide guitar solos, and Billy Preston, and the three drummers and the Shankar piece and the whole thing.

So then I went out and bought the DVD, which I haven't watched so far. In some ways I don't want to lose the feeling I got from the TV airing of the concert.
