As Rolling Stone raved, "The MUSE No Nukes Concerts of 1979 were a high-water mark of inspiration and optimism...a stunning testimony to the depth of the shared beliefs of the generation which came of age in the sixties."
Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) is a group of artists and activists working for a non-nuclear future. Their inspriing collaboration to bring five nights of concerts to Madison Square Garden and to organize a 200,000 person rally in Battery Park City has been distilled into an unprecedented film, documenting forever that elusive moment when artist, audience, and important cause were perfectly in sync.
James Taylor and Carly Simon create their unique harmony in ‘Mockingbird’ and ‘The Times They Are A Changing’. Jackson Browne performs two of his most celebrated songs, ‘Running on Empty’ and ‘Before the Deluge’ and Bruce Springsteen brings down the sold out house with ‘Thunder Road’ and ‘The River’. Rounding out the extraordinary proceedings are Bonnie Raitt, The Doobie Brothers, Jesse Colin Young, Crosby, Stills and Nash, John Hall and Gil Scott-Heron.
