MTV VMA (Video Music Awards) 2002, NY.
Open air concert form the Rose Center for Earth and Space, the Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, New York, August 29, 2002.

An incredible performance!
Bruce and his band would perform just one song to be broadcasted live at the beginning of the MTV VMA 2002. After the TV broadcast of "The Rising" (which they rehearsed 3 times) the VMA-show went on. Much to the surprise of the audience, Bruce suddenly announced "We've got a few more for you" and despite the pouring rain and the slippery stage the band played an almost 80 minutes long set. Although professionally filmed, this performance was never broadcasted.

Bonus tracks:
Soundcheck "Saturday Night Live". October 5, 2002.
A professionally filmed and never broadcasted. Rehearsing at NBC Studios, New York for the performance at "Saturday Night Live".


Notes from BruceDVDs:
This is great, and a must have. Features the complete, uncut 90 minute rain swept performance in New York as the main event - and the SNL Rehearsal footage is a great bonus as well. Only drawback is the camerawork quality of the VMA show; its pretty poor with cameras often filming the wrong person, and editing is clumsy. Still, its a must have for any DVD collection. Superb sound as well. The audio was dubbed by "DVD Dubbing Guy".
