Mary J. Blige to be at Sting's 60th birthday charity concert

August 31, 2011

Sting will turn 60 on Oct. 2, and to celebrate, he will present a benefit concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York on Oct. 1. Springsteen will perform, as will Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Mary J. Blige, Herbie Hancock, Vince Gill, Branford Marsalis,, Rufus Wainwright, Chris Botti and others. Proceeds will go to the anti-poverty charity, the Robin Hood Foundation.

Sting's band will include original E Street Band keyboardist David Sancious, by the way, so this show will offer a rare opportunity to see Springsteen and Sancious perform together.

Tickets go on sale today to Sting fan club members only. For information, visit
