Yusuf, Thousands of fans packed the National Mall in Washington DC on Saturday (October 30) by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert “Rally to restore sanity and / or fear,” and the two comedians political thread brought out a series of legends entertain the crowd.
About half of the show, which presented a set of nearly 40 minutes of John Legend and The Roots, Stewart announced the next performer, Yusuf Islam. The pop icon formerly known as Cat Stevens, hit the stage with an acoustic version of “Peace Train.” However, instead of letting Yusuf quietly strumming along, Colbert broke on stage, ranting about the song’s message of harmony. The satirical commentator then proclaimed: “My train is coming to the stage today and the driver has an important announcement to make!”
Colbert did a good job of busting performance, and paved the way for a surprise appearance by one of greatest rock and roll shows plugs: Ozzy Osbourne. Decorated in a black coat with its signature colored glasses, the Prince of Darkness cried when he took the stage and took the band through the metal classic “Crazy Train.”
However, before he could finish Osbourne, Stewart grabbed the microphone and repeats any interruption-the-rock-legend-thing, launching protests, as “I will not get on that train I do not feel comfortable in that train!” Stewart Yusuf ordered the start again with “Peace Train” until Colbert jumped in, saying: “I will pull the emergency brake on this rainbow, moonlight chu-chu!” Osbourne and Yusuf was back and forth volley metal classics and folk on the train, until they both gave up the fight, embraced and left the stage.
But the public did not remain without a stellar performance of some legends of music. Colbert and Stewart pace about lamenting the lack of singers to the results related to the railway-belt, to a line drawn from the choir’s harmonious O’Jays “Love Train” was in the air.
“Is that the sound of Philadelphia? Stewart asked.
Colbert asked, “Was the sweet soul of Philadelphia?
Sure it was. The legendary soul group then took the stage at the slick white suits; busting moves easily back to 1973 just for the delight of the crowd.
