Harriet said that there has been a very strong response to the concert from the music and entertainment industry, in terms of donating to the auction and being open to participating in the concert itself.
“I don’t think anybody has said no, I don’t want to be a part of this thing,” said Harriet.
Harriet said that more details on the lineup of musicians, entertainers and baseball players will be released as the concert gets closer. He also said that there will be other events held in conjunction with the concert, including a celebrity softball game the Friday before in conjunction with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and an announcement with the Grammy museum.
Still, the central purpose of the concert and the silent auction is to raise money for the Hall of Fame, which is a not-for-profit organization.
“We want to raise as much as we can,” said Harriet, who also said that the concert will also try to raise awareness about the Hall throughout the country.
