Sheryl Crow will headline a free concert in Central Park next week and has invited rocker pals like Eric Clapton, Sarah McLachlan, Chrissie Hynde and Stevie Nicks to play along.
"I felt like it was not only worthwhile, but also something that will be fun and exciting," said Ms. Crow, who recently moved to New York.
The Tuesday concert is being sponsored by American Express, which is giving New York City $1 million for use of the park. Tickets were to be distributed through a street-corner lottery.
The full concert will be broadcast on the SFX Radio Network and on a Web site that allows computer users to pick their camera angles. Fox plans a live telecast of the concert's second half.
