Official Inauguration 2009 activities kick off at 2:30 p.m. today with the free “We Are One” concert at the Lincoln Memorial. HBO is also showing the concert today to all cable subscribers, even if you don’t have HBO. (Image: HBO Web site.)

UPDATE at 7:30 p.m.: Am I the only one who doesn’t see the concert on HBO (Comcast channel 3)?

UPDATE at 3:53 p.m.: Well, COMCAST is not providing HBO’s live feed of the concert for free. It was my mistaken understanding they would do so. Hope they show it at 7 tonight. But, the live online feed at was great.

If you are heading down to the Inaugural Concert at the Lincoln Memorial, here’s some info from the D.C. Government’s official Inauguration 2009 Web site (below).

Actually, you don’t have to schlep to the Lincoln Memorial because HBO is televising the concert for all cable viewers–you don’t have to be an HBO subscriber. Watch ““We Are One: Opening Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial” live on HBO at 2:30 p.m. or at 7 p.m. tonight.

The line up of mega-stars includes Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, Bono/U2 and Stevie Wonder. The rest of the lineup is just about as impressive.
