Because no one has started a thread.
Bon Jovi almost ruins Born to Run.
The only reason JBJ DIDN'T ruin it is because Bruce was there to keep him from careening the car into the ditch. Christ. JBJ is far more hammy and pathetic than even I remember.
Roger Waters is 69. He looks pretty good.
Those kids were fucking boring.
Why is it the same aging white men in every concert?
Roger Waters was fanatastic. I liked the kids. Of course, Adam Sandler is bringing everything to a shreiking halt. Time to hit the mute button. Bruce really brought it. He sounded better than he has in years. This really is the shit.
Ugh. Adam Sandler.
Bon Jovi is on. Time to order take-out.
Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora -- the botox twins.
Jon looks great. Kristen Stewart looks 45 years old in high definition.
Kristen Stewart always looks dirty and like she just rolled out of bed. Smug and socially awkward at the same time. What an unattractive combination.
Sorry, bitches, Sandler was hilarious.
Is this streaming online anywhere?
It's probably on a radio station in your city.
Why did they let Adam Sandler drop his pants and take a big, smelly shit on stage??

Ew. Why was she even invited?
What was that whole Keith Moon thing? He's been dead for 35 years.
Is The Who the last act? Because I think it's past Paul McCartney's bedtime.
Poor daltrey. He lost his youth, his looks and now his voice. He's frightful.
How come The Kinks never pay these benefits? Or Crosby, Stills, Nash? The
Police? Led Zep (what's left of them)? Paul Simon? Carly Simon? James Taylor?
Someone needs to tell Brian Williams that he isn't on NBC. What a fucking hall monitor. Roger Daltry said fuck and opened his shirt. So what. His daughter is on a show that has more nudity and just plain gross scenarios than True Blood.
It does seem rather odd how many of the acts tonight are from Britain.
Hip hop is so boring.
Thank YOU, R15!!
Kristen Stewart looks AWFUL!!! And I'm not a fan, nor hater.. Trash! Dont care about her unless she comes out of the closet some day. Even that's pushing it.
I love how when during a fundraiser somebody sings about how much money they have.
Kanye is horrible when will this end.
Why is Kanye wearing a leather skirt?
He looks like a buffoon in the leather skirt.
Everyone at my house cleared the room when Kanye came out.
Jake looks HOT with the beard. The hairy, on the face kind of beard.
None of the comedians on this show are funny. The last bit was a master class in what not to do if you want a career in show business.
[quote]Someone needs to tell Brian Williams that he isn't on NBC. What a fucking hall monitor. Roger Daltry said fuck and opened his shirt. ...
Did Brian open his shirt as well?
LOL, r29. They didn't miss a thing.
This is the first time I have ever heard Kanye west. He sucks. He's talking (not singing) about douchebags.And he's wearing a skirt
So a leather skirt and leggings are gangsta now?
Did Billy Joel have to do the obvious and open with this song? After Roger Waters this show went down hill fast. The Stones were pricks. I wonder why they cut their set short? There is some drama there.
I'm sure Kanye enlightened all the geezers watching ancient British rockers about the qualities of hip hop.
Billy Joel opened with the same song he did at the OTHER hurricane benefit.
You know the answer to that question, r32. What's your point?
Isn't Russell Crowe boning Billy's ex-wife Katie Lee?
Paul McCartney is hard rocking it. I'm glad he isn't doing those sappy love songs. It was great to hear a Beatle do Helter Skelter after all these years.
I'm really enjoying Paul's performance. Shit, he sounds really good.
Really, r43? You're that anal?
What did Brian Williams say to criticize?
Did he apologize for the swearing and/or open shirt?
I was watching but missed Brian Williams' comment on The Who.
I know the guitarist said 'fucking beer'.
Brian Williams was showing hole to any takers backstage in the mens room.
He bleaches it.
Alicia Keys was in magnificent, fantastic voice this evening.
I was really impressed with her voice and piano playing.
I have to apologize to my criticism of her in another thread about her singing. I said she sometimes sounds off-key....more than she should.
I have heard her sing off-key, but tonight at the Sandy concert, she was magnificent in every way.
(I think she was off-key and did not sound particularly good at Whitney Houston's funeral in the church, but I will refrain from any further criticism, as now I think she must most likely be on tune the vast majority of the time)
I think the sound was very bad. I've never heard a concert sound so bad in my life. I know it's MSG and it isn't going to sound like Austin City Limits on PBS, but still.....
R48, I don't know what channel you were watching it on, but the sound quality on AMC was terrible. I was flicking through the channels and the quality of Fox Movie Channel's version of the concert was excellent
"This Girl is on Fire" drives me nuts. When I saw it in that commercial about the boring guy becoming interesting (what was the product)- I did not know it was her and I thought- commercial idea of a pop star- and a song that is as creative as a jingle- awful. Then I realize it is her and she is a big deal!
Don't get her at all- the voice- the music. I suppose she's a tad better than Britney and JLo.
I find her singing strident and she does sing off key more often than not. That Girl Is on Fire is one note and boring, as is New York. I can never hear New York without conjuring up an image of Derek Jeter shilling for a local car dealer here in...wait for it...New York. I have to admit that I muted the sound when she started to sing at last night's concert so I cannot speak to her performance.

That commercial is for Amex and it drives me fucking bonkers.
I would have thought that being associated with the Kardashians would mean Kanye could get a skirt that was more flattering to his hips.
Chris Martin was surprisingly good just sitting on a stool with an acoustic guitar.
R53. Did I miss the guitar part? I tuned in when he sat and played the piano.
R54, Martin did three songs total. He played guitar for the first two and then moved to the piano for the last one.
The first song was him solo doing Viva la Vida. Then Michael Stipe joined him for a duet of Losing My Religion. When Stipe left the stage, Martin went to the piano while making a joke about the average age of all the performers.
Sounds like you might have missed those first two songs.
