Lady Gaga, U2’s Bono and the Edge, and Usher will perform at a bash for President Bill Clinton that Yahoo will stream live over the Internet, the parties are set to announce Tuesday.
STORY: U2 to Donate $7.2 Million to Music Education
The concert, scheduled for Oct. 15 at the Hollywood Bowl, is billed as a celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the William J. Clinton Foundation, which has raised some $10 billion for the former president’s favorite causes, such as HIV/AIDS treatment and reducing hunger.
It’s also a late birthday party for Clinton, who turned 65 on Aug. 19.
STORY: Usher: Changing the Face of Charity One Child at a Time
Details of the concert were still being hammered out early Tuesday, but a long list of movie and TV personalities are likely to appear, and a spokeswoman said tickets will be available to the public, unlike an invitation-only Rolling Stones concert that was organized to celebrate Clinton’s 60th birthday.
Instead of a traditional TV partner, the organizers have granted exclusive broadcast rights to Yahoo, which expects to stream it worldwide to an audience of several million, and sponsors were still being lined up Tuesday.
