Saturday night was a big one in Little Rock’s Robinson Auditorium, when Eddie Vedder, Natalie Maines, Johnny Depp, Patti Smith and other artists put on a high-energy, near-perfect show to raise awareness about the injustice being suffered by the West Memphis Three. Here’s a good account of it from AOL.com.
I’m told that Live Nation may eventually make the whole concert available on pay-per-view, and that Sirius radio will broadcast it on some yet-to-be-announced date.
Meantime, thanks to members of the audience who captured good audio of many of the songs with their cell phones, here’s a sense of how the concert unfolded.
