They've all come to look for America
In the same way that she did for his performance at The Concert For Tibet, Spaceface, with the help of Susans, has put together some pages about David's appearance at The Concert For New York City, last Saturday. Apart from a roundup of the press that followed the event, there is also a summary of message board postings, mainly gathered from Sunday and Monday, under "Journals". Also, look out for an excellent page of screen grabs by Susans.
Here follows a quick sample of some of the stuff you can expect to read:
David Bowie got the night started - and drew a wild response from a crowd packed with thousands of police and firefighters - with an epic rendition of his classic 1970's hit 'Heroes' : New York Post
David Bowie kicked off the gala with a poignant cover of the Simon and Garfunkel hit, America. But he made no speeches, his choice of songs said all he wanted to convey. : Daily Mirror (UK)
"I'm also proud of all these English people. I call them teabags ? your Jaggers, your McCartneys, Clapton, Elton, Bowie. They are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with us, and I thank them for that." : Billy Joel
It was the perfect opening to the show. Poignant, simple, and fresh. It almost seemed religious - the gentle singer, the immigrant's song. : cavebat
I think that what I just saw was one of the most profound performances of Bowie's career. Totally moving and apt. Wow indeed! : iforgot
