The Rev. Al Sharpton turns 60 on Oct. 3 and will celebrate with two milestone-worthy events, hears THR.

A rep from his National Action Network confirmed that Sharpton will be feted at a VIP-heavy private bash at the Four Seasons in New York on Oct. 1.

The next day, festivities move to Harlem for a gospel concert (pegged as a free, ticketed event for the community) featuring Yolanda Adams and Marvin Sapp at the First Corinthian Baptist Church.

As for the actual day? Sharpton will be doing his radio show and MSNBC PoliticsNation show, followed by dinner with his daughters and close friends.
