I thought David Bowie would at least introduce Arcade Fire, or say something to kick off the "festival", but nope. He was there though - I saw him. He was wearing a gray suit, and looked happy & healthy - sort of like how he looked two nights earlier at the Met........
Iman & David Bowie @ The Met, NYC - May 7, 2007
He came out the backstage door into the orchestra area at some point. For the encore at least - he was standing against the same wall (stage left) that the trumpet player (Kelly Pratt) (also in Beirut) ran along to do this....
Arcade Fire were great, but it sounds like maybe United Palace was more fun. At Radio City there was lots of fighting (literally) between the crowd and security. A bunch of people got dragged out. The security didn't know what to do when Win encouraged people to dance in the aisles.

Syracuse W Hotel - Apr 26, 2007 (INFO)
I missed the National - not on purpose.
And just in case you were wondering, Zach Condon from Beirut was there too - it would have been the only one of the three shows he would have been able to make. Actually, they were ALL probably there - the whole indie trumpet player mafia.
