The US leg of the one an island tour opened in spectacular fashion, with special guests David Crosby, and Graham Nash bringing the house down at Radio City Music Hall. As you can imagine, the show was very special, but the adition of Crosby and Nash took the musicianship to new heights. Rapturously received by the rabid NY audience, David and Graham added their trademark harmonies to not only the On An Island title track, but also to The Blue, and Shine on you crazy diamond.
AS if that wasn't enought, they stunned the already delirious hordes by returning to the stage one final time in the encores. In between Wish you were here, and Comfortably Numb, they performed Find the Cost of Freedom accapella with David Gilmour, on the first live occasion ever as the three of them.
The other new addition to a show packed full of highlights was the introduction of lasers, added by lighting maestro Marc Brickman, and used in a sparing but completely entrancing way, sparking a forest of mobile phone cameras.
The camera work on this show is not quite as good as the second night, which is a 2 cam mix. Audio quality is about equal on both nights. Unless you need both shows, get the second night, as opposed to this one.
