Comments on the Inauguration Concert

My friend Ben writes:

After freezing our asses - or mainly feet - off for 4+ hours, it was not overwhelming. Not sure if it was the cold or the constant interruptions for readings from Lincoln, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Reagan, etc... the show didn't have an overall vibe to it and the crowd never really went nuts. U2 and strangely Garth Brooks had the most energy and gave the best performances with the ensemble pieces with Stevie Wonder (with Usher and Shakira) and then James Taylor (with John Legend and some other people I didn't know) closely behind. Definitely could have done with more U2, Bruce, and less Navy Glee Club and Tom Hanks.

Hope the Navy Glee Club doesn´t come after you now, Ben...

This is the third time I've heard how good Garth was. Viva la return!
