The 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be highlighted by concerts at Madison Square Garden on October 29th and 30th to raise funds for the Hall of Fame. Each night will feature a different lineup and so far U2 and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Eric Clapton and many more.
Robbie Robinson and Cameron Crowe are helping to plan and produce the HBO special, which will feature highlights from both nights at the Garden. The bands have been asked to play songs in tribute to their influences in music, so expect Bruce to be playing an Elvis song instead of Born to Run. The HBO special should run about 4 1/2 hours.
The tentative lineup for the concerts include:
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends
Paul Simon playing solo and with Art Garfunkel
Little Anthony & the Imperials
Jerry Lee Lewis
James Taylor. And more artists to be added to the lineup.
