Bono and Gavin Friday (U2Log)
Bono and Gavin Friday

On October 4 at New York City's legendary Carnegie Hall, (RED) unites a world-class line up of artists for a special (RED)NIGHTS concert "Hal Willner Presents: An Evening with Gavin Friday and Friends." The star-studded evening will feature Laurie Anderson, Antony, Elizabeth Ashley, Bono, Adam Clayton, Andrea Corr, The Edge, Flo & Eddie, Joel Grey, Bill Frisell, Guggi, Scarlett Johansson, Courtney Love, Lydia Lunch, Patrick McCabe, Maria McKee, Shane MacGowan, Eric Mingus, Larry Mullen, Jr., JG Thirlwell, Martha Wainwright, Rufus Wainwright, Chloe Webb, plus special guests. Tickets for the event will go on sale beginning Wednesday, September 16 at 11AM EST via CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800, carnegiehall.org and the box office. As is the case with every (RED)NIGHTS show, a portion of the proceeds from the concert will go directly to the Global Fund. For more information, please visit www.joinred.com/rednights or www.gavinfriday.com.

Longtime friends and professional collaborators, Willner and Friday came together to bring the concert to life and raise awareness of (RED)™'s mission. Friday, a childhood friend of Bono, is an Irish singer, composer and painter and founding member of the gothic rock group The Virgin Prunes. Willner has produced albums for Marianne Faithfull, Lou Reed, William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, yet is perhaps best known for assembling tribute albums and live events saluting Leonard Cohen, Thelonius Monk, Tim Buckley, Edgar Allen Poe and Marquis de Sade.

Willner said, "This unique evening is a celebration of Gavin and a gathering of friends and amazing musicians. We're all proud to partner with (RED) to help fight AIDS in Africa." "It's an honor to be a part of this (RED)NIGHT because I know the money generated will go directly to people who need it," added Friday.

That is an insane lineup.

Lydia Lunch also performs one day earlier with her band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Rufus and Martha Wainwright are appearing with their father Loudon at Highline Ballroom in NYC TONIGHT (9/15).

The evening at Carnegie Hall is yet another impressive addition to the (RED)NIGHTS series. Thus far, (RED)NIGHTS artists Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry, Gomez, Santigold, O.A.R., Lisa Hannigan, The Veronicas, Matisyahu and K'Naan have each turned one of their concerts (RED) to bring the (RED) experience to life in a new way. Additionally, (RED) recently announced a new set of fall dates for (RED)NIGHTS, which will feature concerts by Built to Spill, Thievery Corporation, Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Joshua Radin and Sondre Lerche at venues such as The Fillmore in San Francisco, The Paradise in Boston and the House of Blues in Chicago.

At each (RED)NIGHTS concert, the participating artists aim to inspire fans to join (RED)'s mission to eliminate AIDS in Africa by pausing to highlight the many ways to get involved and encouraging those in the audience to share the message and experience with others. Ultimately, it is the goal of (RED)NIGHTS to build a community-of artists, concertgoers and music fans everywhere-that is passionate about helping to fight AIDS in Africa.

(RED) presents the (RED)NIGHTS concert series at select Live Nation clubs and theaters across the country. (RED) and Live Nation are collaborating to link acclaimed artists with their fans to join the fight against AIDS in Africa. Information about the scheduled (RED)NIGHTS concerts can be found at http://www.livenation.com and http://www.joinred.com/rednights

anyone got the under on Courtney Love dying before 10/4?

Posted by Jim | September 15, 2009 1:06 PM

That's some lineup. Where'd they dig Courtney Love out from?

Posted by iamtheangel.com | September 15, 2009 1:21 PM

If they take requests, I'd like to hear Joel Grey and Lydia Lunch duet on "Spooky" by Dennis Yost and the Classics IV.

Are Scarlett Johansson and Courtney Love doing beauty and the beast?

i boned Rufus Wainwright two years ago.

I was willing to go to this, primarily because Gavin and JG Thirlwell are fucking awesome. BUT, the fact that Scarlett Johanson is part of this - FUCK THAT! She's awful, and the coolness of this event went straight down the toilet!

$35 for cheap seats..not too bad!

Virgin Prunes = incredibly underrated. Find "Heresie" at all costs. It's one of the most artfully terrifying records ever made.

Get over yourself. Also you are obviously either an ugly straight female, or maybe gay, but gay with bad taste.

How much is "a portion"?

I kinda want to go just because the words on the poster are in the shape of a Boxer. Boxer dogs are neat.

Too bad Gavin has Mr. Vox for a friend -- he's far more talented than Hewson will ever be. Gavin Friday's _Each Man Kills The Thing He Loves_ is a great album ... will Paul Hewson and his buddies ruin this thing? Or is it worth the ticket price?

"Get over yourself. Also you are obviously either an ugly straight female, or maybe gay, but gay with bad taste."

Actually - I happen to be a straight male that finds a talentless tuna taco (such as Scarlett) repugnant! She lowers the caliber of the show.

Wow! it is great to see Eric Mingus in that lineup- he pulls the whole night together- I got my tickets!

An awesome lineup to save the continent of Africa from AIDS (did the USA put AIDS there in one of their crazy hate-filled experiments?)
there are a couple of pretentious turds up in the line up. Great to see Lunch and Jim bust some balls with Gavin...I think Sir Bono can save at least 1/2 the African continent from AIDS with the earnings of one of U2 "live" show.

I have studied that creatures should try to obey the ten commandments
of God in the bible in Exodus chapter 20 to try not to hurt or kill
the creature called bird and the creature called human and every type
of creature in the womb or egg shell or anywhere.
Creatures should try not to kill every creature.
Creatures should try not to hurt every creature.
Creatures should try not to molest every creature.

The New Jerusalem Bible Exodus 20:13
"'You shall not kill." and Deuteronomy 5:17 "'"You must not kill."

Holy Bible New International Version, 1984.
Exodus 20:13-14 "You shall not murder. You shall not commit
adultery". In Exodus 20:17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's
house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife". In Genesis 9:12
"the covenant I am making between me and you and every creature
with you". Deuteronomy 4:13 "He declared to you his covenant, the
ten commandments, which he commanded you to follow". In
Deuteronomy 5:17-18 "You shall not murder. You shall not commit
adultery.". In Deuteronomy 5:21 "You shall not covet your
neighbor's wife". In Genesis 1:30-31 "And to all the beasts
of the earth and the birds of the air and all the creatures
that move on the ground - everything that has the breath of life in
it - I give every green plant for food. And it was so. God saw all
that he had made, and it was very good.". Exodus 20:2 "I am the
LORD your God, who brought you out Egypt, out of the land of slavery.".
Good not to do adultery, fornication, homosexual, or masturbation,
and good not to mate different animals. Genesis 4:1 "Adam lay with
his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and birth to Cain. She said,
"With the help or the LORD I have brought forth a man."". Jeremiah
1:4-5 "The word of the LORD came to me, saying before I formed you
in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart: I
appointed you as a prophet to the nations.".

I have studied not to use the bad substances: aspirin,
antibiotics, and psychotropic substances because those substances
where made to kill or hurt creatures. I have been thinking about
not to use those bad substances. I also have been thinking about
not to cut, crush, bruise, or burn hurt creature's flesh. I have read
that vaccination was made to hurt creatures, so good not to vaccinate.
Good not to bad tests. Good not to molest creatures. I have been thinking
about not to use the murder hurt bad paralyzing food tube, and not
to use the murder hurt IV tube. If someone is exhausted that
individual might at lips only have a fine warm strained corn or
tomato or vegetable soup only poured from a paper cup with soup about
a quarter table spoon with thinking about not to drown and as needed repeat for
a meal, and then totally remove the paper cup.
Good to have good food, good drink, good comfort, good conduct,
and good freedom.

I have been thinking about to use the ten commandments of God in
Exodus chapter 20 (Exodus 20:13 "You shall not murder.") to
interpret to try not to kill or hurt the creature called bird and
every creature in the womb or egg shell or anywhere. Exodus 20:13
"You shall not murder.". The fourth letter "d" might have a meaning
of creatures from the four winds, and that the letters "rug" might
have a meaning of rag or rug meaning a cushion furniture (may be
called bed, couch, ransack, sackcloth) meaning of the word drug as
a rug or rag or cushion furniture (may be bed or couch). Pillar of
stone might mean a higher area for land type creatures to go to so
not to drown (also may be consider the use of ship and/or supplies)
meaning of a meaning about the word stone. A lamp burning to give
light to see at a distance so not to get hurt might be a meaning of
the word burn. Exodus 20:13 "You shall not murder" with trying not
to kill every creature put to eat might mean about the fourth
letter "d" about not to kill creatures from the four winds and that
the letters "eat" a meaning to eat very good plants for food and
that the eighth letter "h" to use the good part of what God created
in the first six days and present about the first week of seven days
meaning wording on the eight day (eight days old) meaning try not to kill
every creature with to immediately when needed may be eat very
good plants for food meaning about the word death to try not kill
every creature (also may be use ship, cart with transporting, food,
drink, escape to be far from error or hazard, traveling clothing to
block, different shelter). Exodus 20:13 "You shall not murder.".
I have been thinking about not to put salt in food because in the
bible writing about the Jordan River and valley farming irrigated Jordan
plain that the river later partly flowed to the Salt Sea and when flood time
the land type creatures needed to escape so not to drown so
that the wording about "throw out and trampled by men" meaning to
try to leave the flood plain carefully and earlier may be store
supplies in a higher area (also may be use ship and may be row,
cart for transporting, food, drink, escape to be far from error
hazard, traveling clothing to block, different shelter). Good to have
good food, good drink, good comfort, good conduct, and good freedom.
Good not to use bad guns. Good not to use the bad machine blimp with
radar and bad laser kill ray or hurt ray or the bad disturbing
voice ray or bad sound ray.
Exodus 20:13 "You shall not murder.". Exodus 20:2 "I am the LORD your
God who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.". Exodus
20:12 "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long
in the land the LORD your God is giving you.".

Good to use the ten commandments of God for every creature to
try to live. Exodus 20:13 "You shall not murder.". The word dance might
have a meaning about speech about not to kill or hurt calf and creatures,
and for land type creatures to escape so not to drown in Exodus 32:17-19.
Creatures should try to obey the ten commandments of God in the
bible in Exodus chapter 20 to try not to kill or hurt the creature
called bird and every creature in the womb or egg shell or
anywhere. Exodus 20:13-16 "You shall not murder. You shall not commit
adultery. Thou shall not steal. You shall not give false
testimony against your neighbor.". In Exodus 20:12 "You shall not
covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife".
In the bible translation called The New Jerusalem Bible Exodus 20:13
"'You shall not kill." and Deuteronomy 5:17 "'"You must not kill."
Study of reference:
Holy Bible New International Version, 1984: Genesis 9:12-13,
Deuteronomy 4:13, Deuteronomy chapter 5 (also look at Exodus
chapter 20), Luke chapter 1, Genesis 4:1, Jeremiah 1:4-5,
Genesis 1:30-31, Leviticus chapter 13 and 15,
Deuteronomy 22:13-29, Leviticus 19:19, Genesis 25:29-34,
Genesis chapters 14 and 17, Matthew 24:31, Isaiah 21:3-5, Genesis 45:19-21,
Jeremiah 38:12-13, Matthew 25:4, Genesis chapter 14, Genesis 28:10-22,
Matthew 5:13-16, Exodus 30:34-38, Isaiah chapter 11,
(New American Bible: Sirach (Ecclesiaticus) chapter 42, Sirach 29:21).

Exodus 20:2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt
of Egypt, out the land of slavery.”. In John 8:11 "Go now and leave
your life of sin.". In The New Jerusalem Bible in John 8:11 "Go
away, and from this moment sin no
more.". In The Holy Bible King James Version in Mark 16:15 "And he said
unto them, Go ye into all world, and preach the gospel to every creature.".

The New Jerusalem Bible Exodus 20:13
"'You shall not kill." and Deuteronomy 5:17 "'"You must not kill."
