Inauguration Concert Today

An estimated 500,000 people are gathering on the National Mall for today's inauguration concert at the Lincoln Memorial. HBO is broadcasting the show live and for free from 2:30-4:30PM eastern time. Performers include Bruce Springsteen, U2, Garth Brooks, Steve Wonder, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Usher, Shakira, Renee Fleming, Herbie Hancock, Heather Headley, James Taylor, Rosario Dawson, Jamie Fox, Laura Linney and Denzel Washington. I'll be posting clips of performances and Bishop Gene Robinson's speech as soon as they become available.

UPDATE: You can watch the concert live online on

UPDATE II: Not such a great start; the soldier singing the national anthem screwed up twice.
