Bono, Antony & Courtney Love (?!?!) Team to Fight Aids



(RED), the famous Aids awareness organization, is joining forces with some of its BFF's to throw a benefit concert. “Hal Willner Presents: An Evening with Gavin Friday and Friends” will feature performances from longtime friends and (RED) supporters like Bono, The Edge and Scarlett Johannson, as well as Shane McGowan and Courtney Love, who, if anything, will help sell tickets by appearing as toothless trainwrecks. The event, to be held at the Carnegie Hall in New York City, will also feature Laurie Anderson, Antony, Elizabeth Ashley, Adam Clayton, Andrea Corr, Flo & Eddie, Joel Grey, Bill Frisell, Guggi, Scarlett Johansson, Lydia Lunch, Patrick McCabe, Maria McKee, Eric Mingus, Larry Mullen, Jr., JG Thirlwell, Martha Wainwright, Rufus Wainwright and Chloe Webb, as well as surprise guests. Tickets go on sale at 11am (here), so get your AMEX out, as you do not want to miss Kanye inevitably telling the Wainwright Siblings that they are good, but their Dad made one of the best albums of all time. Hopefully (RED) will have Courtney Love live tweet the event.
