Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor to Join Sting for the Bi-ennial Rainforest Concert at Carnegie Hall


Baby, it’s cold outside! That’s the theme for Trudie Styler’s Rainforest Fund concert– just announced for December 14th at Carnegie Hall. Sting will headline, of course, with Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor and Chris Botti on the bill– plus many surprise guests.

You can read more about it at the Rainforest Foundation website. This is a not to be missed event. (It’s the only time I got to meet Nina Simone, which was amazing.)

Plus Sting’s new album will be freshly out (this Friday, November 11th) along with Bruce’s just released “Chapter and Verse.” Trudie Styler (AKA Mrs. Sting) always comes up a cool theme for the show, which means the superstars will be performing some things very special not on their usual repertoire for “Baby¬† It’s Cold Outside.”

Since 1989, the Rainforest Foundation has expanded to 23 countries and raised millions for the indigenous peoples throughout Brazil and other countries including Belize, Cameroon, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mexico, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela. And the money really goes to those people– it’s one of the best run of these types of charities.
