Get ready for Woodstock 1998. Really!
Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks and country's redhot Shania Twain are already booked for the yet unannounced event that has the muscle of media mogul Allen Gerry behind it.
Gerry, who sold his Cablevision international company to Time-Warner for $8 billion a few years ago, owns the Woodstock land in upstate New York's Sullivan County.
You'd better believe organizers are heavy into negotiations with lots of other music names for the music festival. They are stardust, they are golden, or at least they are working hard to pull together this event for Aug. 14, 15, and 16.
How, you ask, could anyone put together something so big on such short notice -- what with artists having to rearrange tour dates and all? Money, according to a source very much on the inside. Big, big money.
