Concerts for Hurricane Relief

Reports come in this afternoon that a series of benefits to raise money for those suffering from the effects of Hurricane Katrina, are in the works. These include everything from an extra date on the Dave Matthews Band tour, to an NBC special on Friday featuring Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., and Tim McGraw. From the E! Online article:

“There are other benefits being organized in Katrina’s wake. BET will team with the National Urban League and the American Red Cross for another telethon effort, set for Sept. 9. Marsalis and hip-hop heavyweights Russell Simmons and Jay-Z will be on hand to unveil details of the show at a press conference Thursday.”
