Concert started almost an hour late. Total disorganization and long lines of hundreds of people waiting down a long city block in the freezing cold weather. Concert was way overlong. Roberta didn't come on until 11:15pm and concert ended close to midnight. Not worth waiting around almost 4 hours for Roberta.

This was a musical retrospective to celebrate the music of George Harrison.
First of all, the venue was disorganised and chaotic. We had to wait in an uncomfortable area on the stairs for over an hour to be seated. The concert stated an hour late and it was very unclear how to pick up the tickets. Preople were angry and restless and several people left before being seated.
This really set up a bad feeling for the show.
Some of the bands were good but a few were terrible and the sound system was awful.
Unfortunately I had to leave before seeing Roberta Flack die to the late start which was disappointing.
If i had paid full price for the show i would have been very angry.

There was great chaos regarding the box office and a wait of over an hour to get our tickets. But as with all NYC events, there was a show before the show like the woman who said she was going to have a heart attack from standing in the cold and she'd blame Goldstar. So the man next to me held up his cell phone and offered to call 911. There were 6 bands prior to Miss Roberta Flack of varying musical abilities. But it was totally worth the seemingly endless wait for Miss Flack, her dead on in the pocket band and her extraordinary back up singer, Honey LaRochelle (if you see she's playing somewhere, run to her show - what a set of pipes). It was the first time ever I saw her face and sincerely hope it's the not the last.
