To Watch: Paul McCartney 9/11 Doc ‘The Love We Make’ & ‘The Concert For New York City’
  |  @   |  

In the month following the 9/11 attacks Paul McCartney organized the Concert For New York City, an all-star benefit held at NYC’s Madison Square Garden. Filmmakers Albert Maysles and Bradley Kaplan filmed the former Beatle making preparations, meeting with fellow musicians, and walking through the streets of New York City days after the attack. Nothing was done with the footage until now.

The Love We Make is a 94-minute documentary created from the footage shot 10 years ago and will make its debut tonight at 10:55PM ET/PT on Showtime. See below for subsequent air dates and times.

The Concert For New York City was recorded live on October 20, 2001 and was released to DVD. Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Kid Rock, Bill Joel, and The Who are among the many who performed at the charity concert to benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund, an organization whose mission is to fight poverty in New York City which set up a special 9/11 fund immediately after the attacks. The 6-hour The Concert For New York City will air in its entirety on VH1 on today, Sunday, September 11, from 4PM to 10PM EST. You can also watch it live tonight on the Robin Hood Relief Fund’s Facebook page.

  1. There is no video I own that moves me as much as “The concert for  N.Y.C.”  We watch it every year on 9/11.   Looking forward to seeing the documentary as soon as it’s available.
