Norah Jones and Jason Sudeikis Amongst Artists Celebrating Stones Fest 2012
Actors, artists, musicians and fans will gather to celebrate the music of the Rolling Stones later this month. Stones Fest 2012 at Webster Hall in New York City will include performances from jazz singer Norah Jones, ‘Saturday Night Live’ actor Jason Sudeikis and many more.
According to the Brooklyn Vegan, the festival is similar to the previously held Petty Fest and Dylan Fest and includes many of the same performers. Both Jones, Sudeikis, and singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins appeared at one or both of those festivals. The traveling party has received critical praise.
Tickets are on sale for Stones Fest 2012 through Ticketmaster, with $2 from each ticket being donated to Doctors Without Borders. Other scheduled artists are Adam Green, Jesse Malin, Jessie Baylin, Tad Kubler (of The Hold Steady), and the Sheepdogs.
No members of the Rolling Stones are thought to be attending the concert. The band has been releasing their own bootleg shows recently, through their Rolling Stones Archives site. Last month they unearthed a 1981 show from their Tattoo You tour of America.
