I'm pretty sure I'll get all mushy and salty water might well up on my eyes when I get to watch it. Yeah, I'm tough enough and I never say I release tears..[:(!][:)]

A number of highlights for me:
Isn't It A Pity - great performance of one of George's best songs
Horse To Water - storming vocal from Sam Brown
For You Blue - subtle, witty, understated performance from our man
Something - wonderful. Macca does a great job, but the really spine tingling moment for me is when Clapton picks up the vocal after the big guitar break
All Things Must Pass - lovely performance from Paul
I'll See You In My Dreams - complete show stealer from Joe Brown, tears in eyes job for me.

Oh, and I thought Jeff Lynne did a great job throughout - nice acoustic guitar, and some great vocal moments. Eg the first few lines of "The Inner Light"..

PS Isn't It A Pity is the only song I've come across so far that features the chord C#m7b5/G. [8)]

Among the great moments for me were Billy Preston's interpretation of "My Sweet Lord" - his voice really went beautifully with this song. Also I liked how Eric Clapton made his guitar weep during "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". And I enjoyed Ringo's simple, but beautiful words "I loved George, and George loved me" and the moment of understanding between him and Macca during "For You Blue" and, of course, "Something" with first just Macca on the ukulele and then everybody joining in.

All in all, however, I think the Concert was great in general and I couldn't really single out one favourite song.

Such a great tribute, hard to tell the highlights. I single out a few:
"My Sweet Lord"(great Billy !), "For You Blue" and "Something" (w/ Paul), "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (Ringo, Eric, Paul, Dhani et al.) and "Horse to Water"(Samantha Brown's interpretation was superb).
