THE big Sept. 20 Madison Square Garden benefit for Hurricane Katrina victims just got bigger. So big, in fact, Radio City Music Hall will be open the same night for even more acts.
Among the performers at the Radio City show are Dave Matthews, Tom Waits, Joss Stone, Trey Anastasio, John Mayer, the Meters, and Galactic with the Mardi Gras Indians.
Simon and Garfunkel and Elvis Costello will join the previously announced artists at the Garden, who include Elton John, Bette Midler and Lenny Kravitz.
Legendary Fats Domino, who was evacuated from his New Orleans home after the hurricane, is scheduled to play at the Garden, along with fellow New Orleanians Irma Thomas, Kermit Ruffins, and the Neville Brothers.
Tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. for the Garden show and Thursday at 10 a.m. for Radio City through Ticketmaster at (212) 465-6133.
The show will pair a variety of top acts with some of New Orleans’ most notable musicians, including Fats Domino and Allen Toussaint, who were rescued just days ago from the devastated city. Among the artists set to appear are Elton John, Jimmy Buffett, Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks, Lenny Kravitz, Bette Midler, John Fogerty, Loggins & Mussina and Earth, Wind & Fire. New Orleans will be represented by the Neville Brothers, the Original Meters and the Dirty Dozen and Rebirth Brass Bands.
