Are the Rolling Stones joining the big December 12 th Hurricane Sandy concert at Madison Square Garden? Hmmm…Harvey Weinstein has summed the press to a noon press conference today at the Garden to make a special announcement. Of course the Stones play Brooklyn tomorrow night (watch our Twitter feed @showbiz411 for updates) and then play two shows in Newark, New Jersey.
Previously Stones sources insisted they weren’t involved. But I figure you don’t call everyone to the MSG at noon unless someone big is being added. And the Stones are the only really big hold outs– unless Led Zeppelin will play reunited. They’ve been in the States this week for the Kennedy Center honors.
Otherwise, Weinstein, Jim Dolan and John Sykes have a great roster. All the money goes to the Robin Hood Foundation. So far the roster includes Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Eddie Vedder, Roger Waters, Kanye West, The Who and Paul McCartney.
Stay tuned this morning for updates….
