Bruce Springsteen & Tom Morello @ MSG (BMoreSweet)
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

U2 closed the second night of the MSG Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shows on October 30th. At the first (10/29), it was Bruce Springsteen & Billy Joel (before one big group sing on Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher")...

After "Badlands" much of the drained audience began leaving and then rushed back to their seats when Billy Joel sat down at the piano and launched into "You May Be Right," "Only The Good Die Young" and "New York State Of Mind." (The pair were uniting the kindred spirits of New Jersey and Long Island, Springsteen explained.) "Higher and Higher" wrapped up the night. The official set list had the show ending at 11:36:55 (yes, they thought they had it down to the exact second), but the final notes rang out at 1:31 a.m. Six straight hours of music, and that was just the first of two nights. [Rolling Stone]
Bruce was actually there both nights (one of many possibly "filling in" for Eric Clapton, who canceled last minute on the second). Those in attendence on the 30th got to see U2, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith sing together on "Because the Night." (And U2 + Mick Jagger (another unannounced guest) + Fergie + Will.i.am sing "Gimme Shelter"...). Ray Davies, Lou Reed, and Ozzy Osbourne all performed with Metallica. Many played with Stevie Wonder. Full setlists below.

HBO will be airing four hours of highlights on Thanksgiving weekend.
(November 29th at 8PM ET).

Bruce's current tour wraps up November 22nd in Buffalo. He was at Giants Stadium earlier this fall, playing the last concerts ever there. U2 also played the venue for two nights in September, and will be back in Jersey in 2010 as part of their just-announced tour.

I can't believe WAVVES was not invited. They are Hall of Fame material.

I got in for free through Iota too. What a great show (night 1... night 2 didn't initially interest me, but the reports make me look forward to watching it on HBO)!

Posted by M | November 2, 2009 1:55 PM

not only did I get in for free, but I snuck on stage and sang back-ups for Aretha Franklin.

top that losers!

a couple little notes from night 2. will.i.am was (thankfully) not involved in gimme shelter. and i'm pretty sure aretha did't sing respect. she walked off with lenny escorting her after think.

great show. metallica killed it and totally won over that audience

Metallica OWNED it.

Sean Lennon's girlfriend sang "The Girl Is Mine" with Dan Deacon

As long as bands like RUSH are not inducted to the Hall, I'm banning the whole bullshit event. Even Metallica said in their speech that they owe so much to RUSH and that it's embarrassing that they are not in the RnRHoF.
And not just RUSH, there are so many other. But I suppose it's more important to induct Abba and Chic and Donna Summer.

Blow me, Cleveland!!

I paid for tickets for night one and it was worth it. The night kept going and the crowd was friendly.

U2 have lost their minds, playing w/Black Eyed Peas. Maybe they'll use the footage for the next DirecTV commercial...

I have zero love for the black eye peas and was not happy to see them there. and their song sucked. however, and i'm very surprised to be saying this, fergie fucking owned that song. she was great. i have to hand it to her. mick was like, "oh shit, i gotta bring it now!"

But doesn't this carry the same inherent flaw as globalization...one site gets compromised and due to their interconnectivity they ALL get compromised...

I had a desire to start my own company, however I did not earn enough of money to do it. Thank goodness my close fellow told to utilize the loans. Therefore I used the short term loan and realized my dream.
