Music Legends Set for Gala Benefit
Rock all-stars Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, James Brown, Ricky Martin, Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, Aerosmith, Rev. Al Green and KISS, among others, will band together for an Oct. 21 "United We Stand" benefit concert in Washington, D.C., as the music community continues to lend its support to the victims of last month's attack on America. According to organizers, all money raised from the event, to be held at RFK Stadium, will go to benefit The American Red Cross Relief Fund, the Pentagon Relief Fund and The Salvation Army Relief Fund. Ticket prices are expected to be announced this week, said a spokesperson for Clear Channel Entertainment, the promoters of the event. The D.C. super-concert marks the fourth benefit event produced by Clear Channel. In addition to Monday night's "Stand-Up for New York" event at Carnegie Hall (which starred Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Cosby and others), the entertainment conglomerate is also behind "Concert for the Americas," to be held Oct. 20 at New York's Madison Square Garden, and "Country Freedom Concert," set for Oct. 21 in Nashville. As for the Garden concert, the bill of fare includes Jagger as well as fellow British rock legends Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney and the Who, to say nothing of James Taylor, Bon Jovi, John Mellencamp, Goo Goo Dolls, Macy Gray and Melissa Etheridge.
