Davis aims to book eight "iconic" artists to perform a three-hour show for 60,000 attendees and a worldwide television audience.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has called on veteran music producer and executive Clive Davis to produce a "mega-concert" in Central Park celebrating the city's grand re-opening after the pandemic-stricken year, New York Times reports.
While the details are still being worked out, and no artists are confirmed, the concert is tentatively set for Aug. 21 as part of a "Homecoming Week" de Blasio is planning. Davis, who grew up in Brooklyn, told the Times he aims book eight "iconic" artists to perform a three-hour show for 60,000 attendees and a worldwide television audience.
The spectacle -- which has the working title "The Official NYC Homecoming Concert in Central Park" -- will take place in the park's 13-acre Great Lawn, where major crowds have gathered for performances by the likes of Carole King, Elton John, Simon & Garfunkel, Dave Matthews Band and the New York Philharmonic. It's also the site of Global Citizen Festival.
