U2’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert coming to DVD

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Mick Jagger, U2, Aretha Franklin, Simon & Garfunkel, Sam Moore et al are all coming to DVD on September 28th from last fall’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary concerts.

I’m usually pretty critical of the Rock Hall, but I’ll let that pass this time. The performances were so good, especially from the first night, that it’s worth enjoying them.

Of course I am particularly partial to Bruce Springsteen’s extended set with “Soul Man” Sam Moore, Billy Joel, John Fogerty, Tom Morello and Darlene Love, and the E Street Band. The YouTube video is attached below. And don’t miss the big finale with all those guys doing Jackie Wilson’s “Higher and Higher.” It was the crowning moment of the two night event.
