According to a report in the Associated Press (AP), the "telecast will benefit the American Red Cross and will be shown on NBC and its cable stations including Bravo, CNBC, USA, MSNBC and E! Other networks are invited to join in."
Hosted by Matt Lauer, the benefit show will be broadcast from Rockefeller Center in New York City. The concert will air at 8 p.m. Eastern, and will be taped-delayed to us out on the West Coast. Additional performers include Sting, Jimmy Fallon and Christina Aguilera.
On a selfish and somewhat related note: did anyone bother to contact New Jersey rockers The Smithereens to perform at the show?
Gary Clark Jr.'s Blak And Blu is an excellent album, and I'm glad to see the disc makes it debut on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts at #6.
The singer-songwriter-guitarist is set to perform on Good Morning America and The Late Show With David Letterman this month.
Every date on his upcoming domestic tour has sold out, including three shows at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City and three shows at the Troubadour in Los Angeles within an hour of tickets going on sale.
