Newsflash! Bono and Edge join Concert for NY benefit!

U2's Bono And Edge, DC, Elton, Bowie Join NY Benefit
October 15, 2001

U2's Bono and the Edge and Destiny's Child are among the latest artists to
sign on for the Concert for New York, which will be held Saturday at Madison
Square Garden to raise money for victims and families affected by the
September 11 terrorist attacks.

David Bowie and Elton John were also added to the lineup Monday (October
15), and Janet Jackson will appear live via satellite.

A publicist for the event said it's unclear at this time whether the artists
will be performing or speaking at the show, which will air live on VH1.
Previously scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET and last four hours, the show
will begin at 7 p.m. and run an hour longer.

Details are still being worked out for the concert, which also will feature
Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, the Who, Backstreet Boys, Macy Gray and a slew
of other performers (see "Jagger, Clapton, More Added To Concert For New
York Lineup"). A panel of actors and comedians, including John Cusack,
Gwyneth Paltrow and Jerry Seinfeld, will appear at the fundraiser as well.

The event will raise money for the the Robin Hood Foundation, which will
administer money to the Twin Towers Fund and to lower-income New Yorkers
affected by the tragedy. The broadcast will display a phone number and Web
address where viewers can make donations. Five thousand members of New
York's fire department, police department and rescue crews are being invited
to attend the show along with their families.
