Something about the way you wrote this that struck me.
It *was* beautiful.
It wasn't just about the music.  It was a history transcending moment that
linked the present to the past.
It was like proof that they still "had it".
It all came together at those moments.
The sound.  The visual.  The wall of music.  The flash of history.  The
nostalgia.  The majesty.
It *was* fucking beautiful.
