Saturday October 1, on the eve of his 60th birthday and right before
Oracle OpenWorld commences, Sting will perform a benefit concert at the

joined by special guest performers including Bruce Springsteen, Lady
Gaga, Billy Joel, Will.i.am, and many more. Sting said, “The show is
both a celebration and chance to give back.”
Get Ready to Dance to 2 Tone Ska at the Oracle Appreciation Event
The English Beat emerged into the post-punk music scene of the 80s, headed up by Dave Wakeling on vocals and guitar. Wakeling played with The English Beat through three hit albums and with General Public, which produced two best-selling albums. And now he's going to rock the Oracle Appreciation Event Wednesday, October 5.

Rock Out at the Site of the 1939–1940 World’s Fair
When you step onto Treasure Island for the Oracle Appreciation Event on Wednesday, October 5, 2011, you'll follow in the footsteps of audiences who started visiting the island for entertainment some 72 years ago in 1939. The island was built for the Golden Gate International Exposition, also known as the San Francisco World's Fair, the theme of which was the "Pageant of the Pacific."
That pageant included entertainment by Jack Benny, Bing Crosby, Edgar Bergen and his Charley McCarthy, Tarzan legend Johnny Weissmuller, swimmer/entertainer Esther Williams, and the King of Swing, Benny Goodman. In less than a month, Benny Goodman played to more than 1 million people on the island. Visitors could also stop by "The Gayway," an amusement area with rides and shows such as the famous fan dancer Sally Rand and Sally Rand's Nude Ranch, Follies Bergère, and Robert Ripley's Believe It or Not.
The Pageant of the Pacific came and went, but some of its buildings remain, now converted into sound stages. During the Oracle Appreciation Event, the performers will play in and around the buildings used in the making of movies such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Robin Williams' Flubber and Bicentennial Man, as well as The Parent Trap, The Matrix, and Caine Mutiny.
Rock to the history. Rock to the music.
