Very dissapointed!
6 February 2002 | by TimellesSee all my reviews

I was very dissapointed with the concert, I'm sorry I purchased it on DVD, the only good thing is the money (hopefully) went to aid the victim relief. From Opera-man forgetting that kids were in the audience to the Backstreet Boys dedicating "Quit Playing Games With My Heart" to the victims families, it was obvious that the concert was "rushed". It truly lacked continuity.

I would highly recommend watching "America: A Tribute To Heroes" It was a phenomenal event that truly lived up to it's title.
