Here comes a super concert on a mega level.
My sources say that Bruce Springsteen and the 15 or so acts who will tour the first week of October for MoveOnPac.org are now in talks for something even bigger. As this column reported earlier, Springsteen, R.E.M., Pearl Jam, Bonnie Raitt and others will be involved in a six-pronged concert tour from Oct. 1 through Oct. 8, beating the drum against George Bush and Dick Cheney’s re-election.
The six tours are set to finish now in six different Florida cities on Oct. 8.
But now the word is that negotiations are proceeding for a giant five-hour show in Miami on Sunday, Oct. 10, with all the acts under one roof, presumably the Miami Arena. That would include all of the above plus John Fogerty, the Dixie Chicks, the Dave Matthews Band, John Mellencamp, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Jackson Browne, Keb’ Mo’, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and many others who might join in for the special occasion.
