U2, Metallica Top Second Hall Of Fame Night
November 2, 2009

After night one of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 25th anniversary concert featured star-studded collaborations like Tom Morello jamming with Bruce Springsteen and John Legend singing with Stevie Wonder, the performers of night two at Madison Square Garden were not to be outdone. After Jerry Lee Lewis got things started with "Great Balls Of Fire," Aretha Franklin took the stage and belted out hits like "A Natural Woman" and "Respect." Her set included a collaboration with Annie Lennox on "Chain Of Fools" and Lenny Kravitz, who added his voice to her classic "Think." Guitar great Jeff Beck came next, and he brought out a roll call of stars such as Sting, Buddy Guy and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top to sing with him. One highlight came when Beck and Gibbons recreated Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady," according to MTV News.


Metallica

As for the headliners, Metallica brought a different sound to the evening when they pounded out Metal hits like "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "One." They also were joined by Lou Reed for "Sweet Jane" and "White Light/White Heat," and they teamed with Ozzy Osbourne to pay tribute to Black Sabbath by performing "Iron Man" and "Paranoid." In a more unexpected move, Metallica even teamed up with The Kinks' Ray Davies for a rendition of "You Really Got Me." The veteran group ended their set with "Enter Sandman."

U2 closed out the night with another parade of hits and guest stars, starting with Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith performing the song "Because The Night." Springsteen also stayed onstage to sing the U2 classic "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." Halfway through "Mysterious Ways," the Black Eyed Peas strolled into the spotlight and the song immediately morphed into their own hit, "Where Is the Love," during which Bono traded lines with Rappers Will.i.am, Taboo and Apl.de.ap. Fergie stuck around when Mick Jagger came out for a group rendition of "Gimme Shelter," and then Bono and Jagger did a duet on "Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of." Finally, U2 ended the whole 25th anniversary celebration with "Beautiful Day," bringing the night to an appropriate end.
