Sting Adds Paul Simon, James Taylor, More Stars to Rainforest Concert


The Sting- Paul Simon show is not over. Simon is set join Sting at the annual Rainforest Foundation concert– this is the 25th anniversary– set for April 17th at Carnegie Hall. Simon isn’t the only act on the roster. The show will also feature James Taylor, Dionne Warwick, opera great Renee Fleming, hornmeister Chris Botti, and Ivy Levan. Ivy is a star in the making. She recently joined Sting on “Late Night with David Letterman” for a wild version of the Beatles “Drive My Car.”

To purchase tickets for the Silver anniversary celebration of the Rainforest Fund, please visit or call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800. To purchase benefit tickets and packages, please email or call 212-245-6570.

I am told the show– even before this list was known– was already on its way to being sold out. So hurry!
