There are many veterans have been invited to the audience. Has been disabled veterans many invitations, such as half-body paralysis and limb defects in, before the veterans that went to the battlefield is said to be due to the nation of the United States, Bruce has sung a concert full emotion. For Sachio Kinugasa rookie era it was not serious baseball, when drinking with a friend of US forces in Japan, it is said that he go to Vietnam tomorrow, though it is the same age for that I is not baseball Do not happiness, its baseball even to copper so they do not do seriously, and is working hard to replace the heart, after it became players until the winner of the People’s Honor Award. Similarly the same age of the young people go to the battlefield, we have been demobilized to bear the large scratch in mind not only the body. The soldiers and the wall of life across the Bruce himself intended only thin, might be time became the other side Even myself, it is not hard to imagine such a thought is was inspired blues.

Antiwar movement that tried to forget us. In an attempt Kureyo heal our wounds It is also locked to have. ” Such a thing is said to be would not be people who do not my imagination gulp. Vietnam War is one of the United States is one of the few war that defeat, from an increase in the prolonged and victims that the anti-war movement was raised was the feature. Lock the unity of the anti-war movement that had a great impact, I can ask from this speech.

著書「グローリーデイズ」の記述によると、コンサートのオープニングに選ばれた「Who’ll Stop The Rain」はベトナム帰還兵の間では国家に準ずる扱いとなっていたと言われ、歌詞内容がまさにコンサートの主旨と合致しています。バンドのうちの少なくとも2人は既に涙を流して演奏していたとのことです。また切ない「The River」においては、ブルース自身が感極まり声に詰まり客席がフォローで歌い、その後も涙声で歌っているのが音源からもはっきりと確認出来ます。本編最後の方で歌われるバーズの「Ballad Of Easy Rider」もベトナム戦争従軍軍人の間で人気が高かった曲ということで、ここで特別に披露されています。
