June 23, 2004 12:00 AM ET

The Dave Matthews Band will make its only New York City appearance of the summer to play "A Change Is Going to Come," a benefit concert for presidential candidate John Kerry, on July 8th at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Mary J. Blige, Jon Bon Jovi, Wyclef Jean, John Mellencamp will be among the other performers.

"Whether one is talking about the economy or the environment, jobs, workers' rights or education, national security or the war on terror, John Kerry is the only choice," says Matthews. "A vote for John Kerry is a vote for a stronger, safer, better America."

The event was originally scheduled for June 10th but was cancelled in deference to the observance of Ronald Reagan's death.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
