Revealed! The Line-Up For Jon Stewart’s ‘Rally To Restore Sanity’

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.
