The Dave Matthews Band is giving $1 million to help Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts.
The band announced Wednesday that the Nov. 30 opening show of its winter tour at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J., will be a benefit concert. All ticket and merchandise sales will go to the Bama Works Sandy Relief Fund, established at the Community Foundation of New Jersey.
Tickets are still on sale for the Nov. 30 show, which features Jimmy Cliff.
2nd baby for Banks
Elizabeth Banks has something else to be grateful for this Thanksgiving – she and her husband have welcomed their second child.
Banks recently starred in the ensemble comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting and announced Wednesday on her website the arrival of Magnus Mitchell Handelman, who was born via gestational surrogate.
The new baby joins his older brother, 20-month-old Felix, who also was born via surrogate after the 38-year-old star of The Hunger Games and producer husband Max Handelman faced infertility issues.
Says the new mom: I now turn my attention to managing two boys under 2. For which I am thankful. And all their poop. For which I am less thankful.
