October 29th and October 30th 2009 at Madison Square Garden, the unofficial ninth wonder of the world, the music world will come together to celebrate life, energy, social and political awareness and a generation of musical poets who have defined the changing times at the 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert Event.
Jenn Wenner, Editor and Co-Founder of Rolling Stone Magazine met with Charlie Rose to discuss the meaning of musical poetry over the last 30 years and how the sound and socio-economic importance have shifted and evolved.
During this two day celebration, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Nicks, Crosby, Still, Nash and Young, U2, Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Metalica, Simon and Garfunkel and many more guests will bless the stage with tributes, honors and recognition for the influences who have made music such a vital part of our lives on the professional, political, economic and social scene.
This concert is more than just an event. It is a collective salute to those with the courage to believe in something bigger than themselves and to voice their message to millions.
To those artists that will be performing and those we have lost over the years, thank you.
