DAVID BOWIE - The Concert for New York City (a musical celebration of gratitude for the 9-11 First Responders)

David Bowie's opening tandem of Paul Simon's "America and his own "Heroes", dedicated to his local ladder company. --------------------------
On October 20, 2001, this now-historic concert took place at Madison Square Garden, a mere six weeks after the horrific terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Thousands of firefighters, police officers, survivors, families, and fans witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime event as, in the space of nearly six hours, many legendary musical performers donated their time and their talent to one of the greatest causes ever, in the process giving their audience an unforgettable burst of pure emotion. --------------------------
The concert was broadcast live on VH1 October 20, 2001, and over $35 million was raised. An additional $275,000 was also raised with a connecting auction.
