We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert
Matt Roush says...
SATURDAY: The weather may put a damper on some of the festivities, but thousands of vaccinated music fans are expected to gather on Central Park’s Great Lawn for an all-star concert celebrating the reopening of New York City as a cultural hub. CNN’s coverage, anchored by Anderson Cooper, begins at 4 pm/ET, leading to the big event, with legendary headliners including Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Carlos Santana, two performers who’ve played Aretha—Cynthia Erivo and Jennifer Hudson—Earth Wind & Fire, Wyclef Jean, Journey, LL Cool J, Patti Smith, The Killers, Barry Manilow and for classical fans, Andrea Bocelli and the New York Philharmonic. Something for everyone, so long as the thunderstorms hold off.
