Exclusive: (Some) Rolling Stones Playing NYC Club Gig Next Month


Yes, some of the Rolling Stones— definitely two, maybe three– will play a small New York City club next month. Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor are setting up shop for three nights at the Cutting Room on East 32nd St. and Park Avenue. That’s the club co-owned by Chris Noth with his longtime business partner Steve Walter. The dates are November 7, 8, and 9th. But check the Cutting Room website for info on how to buy tickets. I say ‘three’ Stones’ because you know that Keith Richards will make an appearance at some point. I’m told the first night will be by invite only, and that all NYC rock stars are encouraged to join in. The Cutting Room’s been doing business at this address for a couple of years, but this will be their official “opening”…

Last night in New York: fundraisers for two charities– Little Kids Rock, Steve and Maureen van Zandt’s pet project, with performances by Elvis Costello, Brian Wilson, Debbie Harry, Jake Clemons, Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, and Darlene Love. It’s a great organization…check them out at www.littlekidsrock.com

…Also, Project ALS had their 15th anniversary event at Roseland with Rob Morrow, Richard Kind, Dave Annable, Gaby Hoffman, Mickey Sumner, Gina Gershon, Paul Rudd, Christine Taylor, and lots of others. Project ALS was started by Jenifer Estess, one of the great people in the world and the founding member of Naked Angels Theater troupe with John Kennedy Jr. Hard to believe they are both gone, and so young. Jenifer’s sisters have carried on this important work…you can donate to them at www.projectals.org
