On August 22, 2006, Rhino Etertainment, in association with MSG Entertainment (MSGE), will release a double disc DVD of the landmark Katrina benefit concert, From The Big Apple To The Big Easy: The Concert For New Orleans, which was held on September 20, 2005 at Madison Square Garden to support the long-term relief and rebuilding efforts following Hurricane Katrina.
The DVD features the Neil Young classic, "Heart of Gold" performed by Dave Matthews and Jimmy Buffett. The live concert raised approximately nine million dollars to benefit long-term hurricane relief efforts. 100% of net proceeds from the sale of this DVD will continue to and awareness for those victims. As the one-year anniversary of the disaster approaches (August 29th), we hope that you will consider purchasing From the Big Apple to the Big Easy: The Concert for New Orleans DVD.
