2:00 pm
i can't imagine they're flattering. great to be covering this with you. the concert will be starting in about ten seconds. it is an incredibly exciting day for new york city to see so many people from all walks of life in central park trying to safely get together. we love new york city, the homecoming concert starts right now. >> the country and most of the world watched when the city was hit by covid. overnight it seemed our hospitals filled, our streets empty. the sound of a city that always crackled with life was replaced by wailing sirens as our sick were carried to overcrowded
2:01 pm
hospitals where beds were scarce. thankfully, thankfully, courage and professionalism were not. it is not marked down anywhere officially. the fight back against the virus began the first time a nurse turned her mask inside out. we remember that. for protection, she wore a garbage bag over her scrubs. at the time, guys, they didn't have ppe because if you didn't know, nothing, and i do mean nothing, comes between a nurse and their duties. grocery store employees, thank you. health care professionals, thank you. the police, nypd here in full force, i was so glad to see them tonight. thank you, thank you, thank you, nypd. other essential workers took their stations on the front lines. next and slowly, new yorkers began to do what we do. we find a way. you know we were once the
2:02 pm
epicenter of the virus. now we moved to being epicenter of the recovery. so it brings us to this humid, sticky august night. a storm is on the way, but we're good! we gather for a common purpose to say welcome back, new york city. give yourselves a round of applause. let's figure out who is in the house. manhattan, where are you. queens, where are you. brooklyn, where you at? bronx. and let's not forget staten island. let's not forget it. so let's give it up. no, no, no, staten island, we love you. no, no, no. give it up for the rest of the country and the world.
2:03 pm
we are here to say this is a way out, even if it takes a little time to get there. you know it has taken a minute. i know we are done with covid, but covid ain't done with us. and we have to remember that. wherever you are watching from, please, stay strong. you will get through this. you will get through this. but for the next five hours, we're going to party new york style. you are all invited. you can wear whatever you like. you can bring whatever you like. when they asked me to do this, i asked what's the attire. they said we have no attire. wear a bright color. bright color. bright color. and let's not miss this. at 4:59, the sun came out. the sun came out! let's kick this off. welcome to "we love new york city, the homecoming concert"

i am cnn meteorologist chad myers. back to the concert in a bit. the 5:00 advisory from the national hurricane center, it is still a hurricane. 75 miles per hour hurricane henri, moving north, 300 miles south of long island now. hurricane warnings are in effect all the way from rhode island, through connecticut and long island obviously itself. the storm will get a bit stronger overnight, then lose a little power in a slightly cooler air south of long island, cooler water as well. it will turn to the right and move away, that's still 24 hours of rainfall in some spots over
2:36 pm
new england. what are the real threats? three to five foot of storm surge. the threat is also full moon. high tides are higher during full moon. three to five, plus high tide, that could be more than you would see without full moon. south shore likely erosion. rainfall coming down. obviously, this place, i don't know if you paid attention to this, there have been 10 to 15 inches of rain across new york and new england in the past two months. the ground is saturated and the trees have leaves on them. when the wind starts to blow and we start to get that water running off, these trees, roots are in mud. and this wind will bring trees down. we will certainly see hundreds of thousands of power outages up here, even with the storm that's only 70 miles per hour. now back to the concert. >> emmy award winning

journalist, co-host of cbs this morning, and fellow new yorker, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome gayle king. >> it just happened to me during the commercial break, somebody went hey, gayle, i looked up, it was stephen colbert who will be on the stage a little later tonight. before we go to prompter, guys, can we acknowledge what just happened here, new york philharmonic made me so proud we live in this city. jennifer hudson, i just said to her, jennifer, what was that, she goes it was an out of body experience, but she certainly fed off the crowd. so thank you. thank you, guys. it is so great. i am so thrilled and proud to be here in central park with friends. we are friends, we are friends. we are vaccinated. we are tested. i'm going to say that again. we are vaccinated. we are tested.
2:38 pm
people have been texting me, saying gayle, the crowd is awfully close. but let me tell you something, clive davis runs a tight ship. when i came in yesterday, i checked in, they said we know who you are, we need to see your id. now we need to see your covid test. now we need to see your vaccination. they ain't playing. so i have so missed this. and i find, don't you find it is simple things you miss. i am finding, i say this all the time, i am even missing people i don't like. was i really mad at that guy? stuff like your favorite diner, your favorite movie theater, your favorite club. soon we'll be able to go to arthur ashe stadium. the u.s. open is coming up in a couple weeks, and of course, broadway. i saw lion king. broadway. so hello, audience. think about some of your favorite places, give me ideas.

2:40 pm
stage right now. he is, listen to the credentials, five-time grammy award winning producer and executive, his work spans six decades over which he has been involved with just about every influential artist has ever recorded, anybody you like, he knows. his tireless effort to bring this concert to life tonight, he did this tonight for us, is only one of his amazing achievements in a career marked by oh so many. ladies and gentlemen, the legendary, going to say that again, legendary clive davis. >> so new york city is and will forever be my hometown.
2:41 pm
it doesn't just have a place in my heart, it is my heart. i was deeply honored when the mayor personally asked me to present his concert on the great lawn of central park to officially reopen new york city. of course, i immediately said yes. i was born and bred in new york. my education at ps 161 in brooklyn, out of rasmus hall high school in brooklyn, and invaluable all my life. once again it is music that will
2:42 pm
be the messenger. music that became my passion, it changed my life forever. and so of course i got to work with many of the iconic performers that i worked with and bonded with becoming lifelong friends. i wanted every genre of music represented tonight. and my team of my son, doug davis and mark johnson and patrick mentin joined me in securing the other brilliant artists you'll unforgetably see this evening. i want to say thank you to jeff gordon, jason miller, and everyone at live nation. and to all of the wonderful players and to all of you music fans throughout the world who continue to support music in
2:43 pm
ever increasing numbers. so tonight, tonight i only ask one thing. when you're having a great time, go on and cheer loud, loud enough so they hear you all the way to brooklyn's crown heights. after all, that's where i grew up. as a quintessential forever loyal brooklyn dodger fan, totally loyal new york yankees fan, that's what i always like to hear in every field and today in yankee stadium. so all of you out there, i hope this evening you have a stern and really memorable night celebrating music and
2:44 pm
celebrating the reopening of our great new york city. thank you. so now it is my great pleasure, my great pleasure to bring to the stage to perform an artist who is so very special to me. i signed him twice. and each time he made music history. he will be joined by the historic music man, wyclef jean, and product gmb, and following that, he will be joined by that great artist with the truly spectacular voice, rob thomas.

i'm meteorologist chad myers with the latest for tropical storm, eventually, henri. right now still a hurricane but it doesn't look like one. very ugly picture here. i don't think this is going to last the night, i think we'll get rid of the hurricane status and get it down to a tropical storm, that's the good news. there will be rain and flooding around, but we don't want 80 miles per hour, we'll take 60 or 70. if you're in new york city, there's showers coming in, find your poncho. so far, no lightning. three-time emmy award winner, recipient of the edward r. murrow award, and spoiler alert, host of "don lemon tonight," please welcome don lemon!
