This is an execellent DVD, I bought the CD a couple of years ago, and was in NYC when the original telecast was aired. I think some of the bands give great performances, Bon Jovi (who I was never a fan of) performed a great rock set, Goo Goo Dolls with and execellent cover, Bowie was perfect, and The Who were superb and stole the show. Good comedy slots with Operaman (Adam Sandler) being the pick of the bunch. There are also celeb's accompanying Heros from 9/11, Meg Ryan with the Stackpole family is particularly moving. Overall a great benefit concert and funds from the DVD go to the Robin Hood charity. Buy it and enjoy, I am not sure if it was broadcast in the UK, but is worth getting your hands on, new or second-hand.
I had the same problem as other reviewers. Bought it from Amazon, it didn't play on my dvd player. Sent it back for a replacement - that wouldn't play either. After doing that three times gave up. Amazon didn't even have the courtesy to reply to my queries. If it can only be played on a laptop in the UK the blurb should say so.
Didn't want to rubbish it because it would not play . DVD threw up the message REGION ERROR which Google tells you it is an anti piracy move but which restricts where it can be played. Ads it cost £4.50 to send back it was not a ggod purchase. I have taken this up with AMAZON.
The contents of the concert were very good, however the American format of the DVD did not work on my home DVD player or PC. I had to watch it on my laptop. I thought that by buying from Amazon UK that the DVD would be formatted for UK use
