If you are one of the gazillion people planning on attending Jon Stewart‘s Rally to Restore Sanity this Saturday here’s what you can expect: Sheryl Crow. Also some other stuff.
National Park Service, which has probably received more attention in the last two months than in the last 20 years combined – has made the Rally permit publicly available (i.e. read it over the phone to someone at CSM). Here’s what the Sanity rally asked permission for back in Sept.
10:00 a.m.: The pre-pre-show begins with videos and music on the jumbotron to keep the gathering crowd friendly and entertained.
Noon: The pre-show starts with a performance from the Roots.
12:40: A comedian (to be determined) warms up the audience.
12:57: A video countdown with a show introduction.
1:00: The show kicks off with the national anthem by a musical guest (to be announced).
1:05: Mr. Stewart welcomes the crowd.
1:20: Mr. Colbert enters, and two actors — Don Novello and Sam Waterston — perform readings.
1:40: Jeff Tweedy and Mavis Staples perform for 10 minutes, followed by Stewart and Colbert until 2 p.m.
2:15: Sheryl Crow performs for five minutes, followed by speakers and guests (to be determined).
2:30: Musical guests (also still being lined up) come on.
2:40: The show turns to a pre-taped sequence — The Sanity and Fear Awards.
So basically, Sheryl Crow, the guy from Law & Order and a lot of surprises.
