HBO Airing Rock Hall Anniversary Concerts

Of the Oakland Press

» See more SOUND CHECK

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary concerts were a hard ticket to get when they were held during late October in New York City. This weekend it comes to the masses.

A four-hour HBO special culling highlights from the two nights of concerts debuts at 8 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 29). The show captures performances by

Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, U2, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon and Simon & Garfunkel, Metallica and Crosby, Stills & Nash — all of whom were joined for special collaborations by a variety of guests including Mick Jagger, Billy Joel, Sting, the Black Eyed Peas, B.B. King, James Taylor and more.

The special is slated to run through Jan. 1 and may expand from there; for a full schedule visit www.hbo.com. The concerts also are expected to be made available on more thorough DVDs some time in the new year.
