Starr and McCartney reunion on DVD

Finally, a DVD from the Changes Begin Within benefit concert featuring Paul and Ringo.
On September 1, 2017, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release the CHANGES BEGIN WITHIN Concert on DVD in the USA[MSRP $15.98]. Featuring sets from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, with each performing some of their best-known classics from The Beatles to Wings and beyond, and reuniting onstage for the finale, this incredible charity show also featured many other world-famous musicians. Previously released in Japan in May, several copies of this DVD (and Blu-ray) have shifted on channels such as ebay, lately.
The concert was first broadcast on TV by channel Thirteen in 2012, three years after the show, but bootlegs of audience films started circulating right after the concert had taken place. This is what's on the new DVD:

Natural Blues - Moby, Betty LaVette, TM Choir
Rise - Eddie Vedder
Under Pressure - Eddie Vedder & Ben Harper
My Sweet Lord - Sheryl Crow
Hurdy Gurdy - Donovan & Jim James
Isle of Islay - Donovan and Paul Horn
It Don't Come Easy - Ringo Starr
Boys - Ringo Starr
Yellow Submarine - Ringo Starr
Baby You Can Drive My Car - Paul McCartney
Jet - Paul McCartney
Got To Get You Into My Life - Paul McCartney
Let It Be - Paul McCartney
Here Today - Paul McCartney
Band On The Run - Paul McCartney
With A Little Help From My Friends - Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr
Cosmically Conscious - All members
I Saw Her Standing There - All members


This was the first of several concerts reunions of Paul and Ringo for seven years, several more were to follow in the years that has gone by after this show - but none of these available commercially for home cinema users. Before this, Paul and Ringo had briefly participated in a Hey Jude singalong at the Hollywood Bowl on Earth Day in 1993, and then they were both on stage at the Concert For George in 2002.
