John Fogerty, Steven Tyler and Jon Bon Jovi to Perform at Howard Stern Birthday Bash
Legendary radio personality Howard Stern recently turned 60, but he’s not done celebrating yet. He’s planning to mark his birthday with an all-star rock ‘n’ roll party on Jan. 31.
According to Billboard, the Howard Stern Birthday Bash will take place at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Among those performing for the King of All Media will be Jon Bon Jovi, Steven Tyler and John Fogerty. The event will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and is being put on by SiriusXM, Stern’s radio home.
There’s no word on whether Tyler will be performing Aerosmith songs or material from his upcoming debut solo album. Either way, Stern couldn’t contain his excitement. “There’s a lot of superstars coming, but I am a huge, huge fan of Aerosmith’s and of Steven’s,” he said on his radio show. “I love the way he interprets a song, and to have him there that night performing is fantastic.” Stern teased Tyler’s appearance by noting that “he’s going to be performing with someone very special.”
The radio star also expressed his excitement in having Fogerty on the bill. “One of my heroes will perform that night, one of the all-time greats,” he said. “A guy whose every record I bought when he was in Creedence Clearwater Revival and later his solo stuff.” Again, Stern was cagey about what exactly Fogerty will play at the show, but he did say that they are “two great songs.”
