The first large-scale concerts with major-name talent at
the site of the original Woodstock since the original Woodstock 29 years ago
will be held Aug. 14 and 15, commemorating the anniversary of those "three
days of peace and music." Joni Mitchell--who didn't make it to Woodstock but
wrote a much-loved song about it--is expected to be announced as one of the
headliners today, as is Stevie Nicks (who also did not appear at the 1969
event) along with several acts that did perform at the famed gathering. Going
under the title "A Day in the Garden" (the name "Woodstock" is owned by the
producers of the original show, who also oversaw Woodstock '94 at another
site), this is the first event at the old Yasgur farm property since it was
purchased by businessman Alan Gerry, who reportedly has plans to build a
Branson, Mo.-type destination for the Woodstock generation.
