The Music of Elton John and Bernie Taupin - Music for Youth Benefit Concert
Elton John and Bernie Taupin will be the next artists honored at Carnegie Hall in a series of benefits for the UJA Federation of New York's Music for Youth Initiative.
Joss Stone, Shawn Colvin, Aimee Mann, Edie Brickell and Phoebe Snow have all signed on to perform John and Taupin songs for the Oct. 10 concert, along with Lloyd Cole, Ryan Shaw, Page McConnell, Jill Sobule, Ed Harcourt and others.
"Elton and Bernie have such a large catalog of hits, and the great number of musicians interested in performing this tribute is staggering," said producer Michael Dorf. "By showtime, the lineup will include an amazing array of talent, from the very young to old, from an upcoming songwriter to a legend in their own right."
Whether or not John and Taupin will perform, like Bruce Springsteen did at his own tribute in April, has not yet been announced.
