Artists campaign for hurricane relief

Well, it was only a matter of time before the always socially-aware U2 pitched in to help with hurrican relief efforts.

The Irish superband-- along with Paul Simon, Kanye West, the Dixie Chicks, Neil Young, and a number of other musicians-- are set to play for the "Shelter for the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast" telethon, set to air on all six major TV networks tomorrow at 8:00 EST.

Billboard has the full story.

I watched most of it. I missed the first few minutes-- which, unfortunately, means that I missed U2-- but I caught Paul Simon, Kanye West, the Dixie Chicks, and a bunch of other noteworthy artists.

Biggest surprise of the show: Garth Brooks, who, believe it or now, played a fantastic, powerfully show-stopping number.
