Fans who missed the star-studded line up at the 2009 benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation need not fear. Featuring sets from rock legends like ex-Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as guest appearances from Sheryl Crow, Donovan, Eddie Vedder and a host of others, the concert will be released under the title “Change Begins Within” in DVD format on Sept. 1 via Eagle Rock.
The concert was originally filmed back on April 4, 2009 in front of a capacity crowd at New York's historic Radio City Music Hall. Hollywood director David Lynch rounded up an impressive line up of artists for the charity's goal of raising funds to teach meditation to one million inner city children.
As might be expected, the truncated 17-song setlist focuses heavily on the former Fab Four members. Following a 3-song set by Starr, McCartney turns in a 7-song set of solo, Beatles and Wings hits “Jet,” “Let It Be” and “Band on the Run,” which culminates with the two ex-bandmates reuniting to perform the 1967 Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band classic “With A Little Help From My Friends.” The night wraps up with all artists joining together for an all-star rendition of The Beatles' 1963 single “I Saw Her Standing There.”
“Change Begins Within” is available for preorder here. See below for the full DVD track listing. Fans can check out a clip of highlights from the concert above.
