Set List: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Show: Night 2

Friday was the second and final night of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 25th Anniversary concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York. Headliners for the second night were Aretha Franklin, Jeff Beck (who replaced an ailing Eric Clapton), Metallica and U2.

While the star power and big numbers may have been a little less than on night one, there were still some amazing guest appearances, including Mick Jagger joining U2 for Gimme Shelter and Stuck in Moment You Can't Get Out Of and a very out-of-place Black Eyed Peas showing up for a U2 backed version of their hit Where is the Love. Fergie also took the female lead on Gimme Shelter. Other big moments included Sting and Jeff Beck on People Get Ready, Ozzy Osbourne and Metallica on Iron Man and Paranoid and Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith and U2 on Because the Night, which received a second playing after the first had a few glitches.

Bono took a moment to speak about the meaning of Rock and Roll:
"Here in rock & roll’s great cathedral, Madison Square Garden, think about all the pilgrims and pioneers that got us all here, the saints and the heretics, the poets and the punks that now make up the Hall of Fame. It’s a dangerous thing, this business of building idols, but at least, rock & roll is not at its best about worshiping sacred cows. It’s about thousands of voices gathered at once in a great unwashed congregation, like tonight. For a lot of us here, rock & roll means just one word: liberation. Political, sexual, spiritual liberation."
