Fashion Rocks rolls into New York in September

Published: 2006-07-14
Two of the most exciting forms of art - fashion and music - will be combined once again for Fashion Rocks, a benefit show curated by Elton John, with proceeds going towards AIDS research.

Fashion Rocks, in its third year, is a concert that displays the close relationship between music and fashion. This year's performers include Christina Aguilera, BeyoncÈ, The Black Eyed Peas, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, The Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna and Kanye West, among many other musicians.

Musicians not only perform but participate in the fashion show by wearing the glamorous creations of some of the world's top designers such as Calvin Klein, Versace and Marc Jacobs.

As part of the lead-up to the event, six bands will compete in a battle of the bands for a chance to perform at the star-studded show. The contending bands include actor Jared Leto's band 30 Seconds To Mars, Angels & Airwaves, Blue October, IMA Robot, The Pink Spiders and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Fashion Rocks will be held in New York City at Radio City Music Hall on September 7. Those of us who can't walk down the red carpet can watch the show on CBS on September 8.
