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….

Harvey Weinstein and Jim Dolan just announced that the Rolling Stones are indeed joining the A List all star Hurricane Sandy concert called 12-12-12. The show at Madison Square Garden on December 12th will also feature a bunch of celebrities including Jimmy Fallon, Billy Crystal, Adam Sandler, Jon Stewart, Brian Williams, Steve Buscemi, Chris Rock, Chelsea Clinton and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The Stones, of course, kick off their three nights in New York of anniversary shows tomorrow night with original members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor featured on the program. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards participated in the Concert for New York in September 2001 when Weinstein wrangled most of the same artists to raise money then for World Trade Center victims.

The 12-12-12- show already features Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Billy Joel, The Who, Paul McCartney,Roger Waters, plus Kanye West, Alicia Keys, and a slew of A list performers.

PS The Stones will almost certainly be performing on the Grammys come February. They just hired Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich to produce their Pay Per View special on December 15th. Very good chess move!

1. I can see them playing three songs ?
2. Mick T./Bill W. confirmed for tomorrow night?
3. Grammy's ?

Hadn't thought of that...who's going to be closing? Paul or Mick and the boys ? In 2001 Paul took the cake, but with only Mick and Keith (unannounced) appearing there was "some" justification I guess and it seemed he'd had more of a hand (what with being stuck in a plane when the attack occurred, writing a song, etc...) in getting things organized. He also has a new album to promote.

We'll see if the old Beatles > Stones still goes these days...like when Tony Sanchez described what happened when Paul played "Hey Jude" at his club for the first time (just after JJF I think) and everyone went wow !

The big guys are getting 45 minutes ? Sounds like a long time...

But yes opening the show would be a good idea, that way they can take off early. Good luck to the guys following them though.

Anyone know where it's getting broadcast? Any chance CNN might pick it up?

Well this is great news! For those of you who don't know, this concert is being broadcast on TV, a few theaters in NY/NJ, and tons of radio stations...

Looking forward to it!
