Epic Concerts Coming to MSG in October

Most of our readers will probably be in Indio on October 29th and 30th, but if you won’t be seeing Phish at their first festival since Coventry, you should think about heading to the Big Apple for one of the most ridiculous lineups ever assembled. Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, U2, Paul Simon, Metallica, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends and Simon and Garfunkel will all perform at Madison Square Garden over the course of those two days for a benefit to create a permanent endowment for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The concerts will be taped for a special on HBO to air in November and will be produced/directed by Joel Gallen who puts together the Rock Hall induction ceremonies each year. Tickets will go on sale to AmEx cardholders on July 27th before the rest of us schlubs get a shot on August 3 at 9AM. The prices for ducats range from $79 all the way up to $2,504.50.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder will perform on October 29th, while Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Metallica and U2 will take the stage on October 30th. There’s been promises of guests and collaborators so this lineup may only be the beginning. Which night would you rather see?

    Night 1 is way better. I’ll be at PHiSH tho. Of course the one weekend this would happen, I’ll be out of town.

    Although, I don’t have 2000 spare ducats.

    Take a small portion of every single or album that an artist sells and put it into a fund for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Problem solved.

    Why should fans have to pay more of their hard-earned money to fund their shrine?
