Online Bonnaroo Thanksgiving Special Features 2015 Performances by Robert Plant, Tears for Fears & More
For the second straight year, the organizers of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival are celebrating Thanksgiving by offering up an online special featuring select performances from the latest edition of the fest. The show, called A Very Bonnaroo Thanksgiving, is more than an hour long and features Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, Tears for Fears and several other acts, all of whom hit the stage this past June.
Plant and his current backing group are shown playing a reworked version of the Led Zeppelin classic "Rock and Roll" on the special, while Tears for Fears are featured performing "Shout." There's also a star-studded jam featuring Mumford & Sons teaming up with My Morning Jacket, Hozier, Dawes and others for a Joe Cocker-inspired cover of The Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends."
Among the other artists appearing in the special are Earth, Wind & Fire, Alabama Shakes, Belle & Sebastian and D'Angelo.
The video also includes tongue-in-cheek introductory interludes hosted by comedian Jo Firestone, segments in which Bonnaroo attendees reveal what they're thankful for, mock commercials and more. In addition, the show reminds viewers that pre-sale tickets for the 2016 Bonnaroo Festival will be available at Bonnaroo.com starting this Friday, November 27, at noon ET.
The 2015 A Very Bonnaroo Thanksgiving special is streaming on the festival's official YouTube channel from now through this Monday, November 30, at noon ET. Once the show is removed from the site, it will never be shown again, so catch it while you can.
The 2016 Bonnaroo Festival is scheduled to take place June 9-12 in Manchester, Tennessee.
