One evening only at Carnegie Hall

Curtain opens to three stools on an empty stage.

Rodrigo y Gabriela walk out to applause and play Tamacun.

They’re joined by Eric Clapton, and play backup for him. They leave, Clapton plays solo, then is joined by Mark Knopfler. Knopfler plays with Bob Dylan. Dylan plays with Neil Young. Young plays with Josh Homme, who plays with Steve Vai, and so on, and so on through the night. Jack White closes.

The curtain shuts. Applause. Calls for encore.

The curtain opens. Glen Hansard is alone on the stage. He launches into a plaintive acoustic version of Fitzcarraldo.

As he plays, he’s joined by The Frames.

Then the Gipsy Kings play their way onstage.

Then as the song continues and rises toward its crescendo, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Josh Homme and Jack White join Hansard in the front.

The finale is epic. The crowd goes nuts.

The curtain falls.

100% of the sales of the DVD One Evening Only at Carnegie Hall go to charity.
