The Beastie Boys have announced another concert to help victims of September's terrorist attacks following word that their first benefit show has sold out.
The second New Yorkers Against Violence concert will take place October 29 at the Hammerstein Ballroom with Afrika Bambaataa, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Mos Def, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and the Roots, according to the Beastie Boys' publicist. Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA, accompanied by DJ Mix Master Mike, will also perform.
The first show, set for October 28, will feature the Strokes, Cibo Matto and the B-52's along with the Beasties (see "Beastie Boys Strokes, B-52's To Play NYC Benefit"). Rival Schools, who were previously being considered for the second show, have since joined the lineup of the first.
