Benefit concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas

Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley, Mary Wilson and Booker T. and the MGs will perform Feb. 1 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for the same "sole" purpose: shoes. The benefit concert, hosted by actor Jim Belushi, will raise money for Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization that provides footwear to victims of disaster.

The late James Brown was originally slated to headline the event and a donation of 100.000 pairs of shoes will be made in his honor. However, the event is not open to the public: only the 36.000 attendees of the World Shoe Association's annual show and conference are invited.

The American musician Chuck Berry, at the age of 80, offers today, Jan. 29, the first of the three international concerts scheduled this year at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC). The next gigs will be by Maná and The Who. In the first concert, the audience has the opportunity to listen to "a living legend of rock 'n roll", together with the Auserón Brothers and the Uski's group. The concert begins at 8:00pm. The concert is part of Chuck Berry's European tour celebrating his 80th birthday.

In June, the Bilbao Exhibition Centre will welcome the Mexican group Maná and, on May 19, The Who. Bizkaia's General Deputy, José Luis Bilbao, announced the Regional Council of Bizkaia and the BEC are trying to create a "stable consortium of sponsors", with private and institutional participation, to promote "great concerts" in BEC's hall Bizkaia Arena. Thus, the public radio station Radio Euskadi sponsors Chuck Berry's concert.
