Democratic Benefit Concert 2000

On Thursday, September 14th, the Democratic National Committee held a fundraising concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for Al Gore and Joe Lieberman. The show was fantastic, lasting just over 3 hours. Besides all of the people performing, there were people like Jessica Lange, Julia Roberts, Michael Douglas and Harrison Ford speaking about why they were supporting the Democrats and introducing the acts. The reason I went of course is because Timothy, Glenn Frey and Don Henley were going to be performing. Unfortunately, because there were so many acts, none got to do more than 3 songs. They were the second to last act of the night. All 3 were dressed all in black and looked great! According to the advertisements, they were supposed to be "performing songs by The Eagles" but they started with Boys of Summer. When that became an Eagles song I'm not quite sure but it sounded great anyway! Next was Peaceful Easy Feeling and then Desperado. At the very end of the night, all of the performers came back and did Teach Your Children. I was disappointed that Timothy didn't get to sing lead on anything - I was hoping for I Can't Tell You Why but it was a great show anyway! Below are a couple of photos of Timothy leaving rehersal the afternoon of the concert. Thanks to JoAnn and her friend Deb for the photos.
