Well, the first part was with an orchestra freely based of musicians from Ravi Shankar’s following… than, when George came up, he looked kinda shy, singing in front a such a huge audience… and I guess the crowd expected to ”rock” a little more.
Unexpectedly, he did not play much of his Beatles’ years stuff, rather concentrated on his new material (from Dark Horse
– not really one of his best albums to say the least). He did not play While my Guitar,
for instance… only chose to make a rather bland rendition of For You Blue
In fact, Billy Preston totally stole the show with his very own hits : That's The Way God Planned It, Nothing from Nothing
and Will It Go Round In Circles
; he’s the one who instilled a little life in a more or less disappointed audience.
