See Bette Midler from front row, help turn Big Apple green


bette-midlerBette Midler will allow one lucky fan to see her in concert, and not “from a distance.”

The Divine Miss M., as she likes to be known, is participating in an online auction that ends on Friday. One of the items in the auction is the chance to meet the “Wind Beneath My Wings” singer and watch her perform from the front row at her Las Vegas show. The auction is handled by with proceeds going to the New York Restoration Project, a group Midler founded 15 years ago to put a green shine on the Big Apple by restoring parks and community gardens.

Midler will perform the last show in her nearly two-year Las Vegas run on Jan. 31, and that’s the ticket fans are getting a chance to bid on.

As of Monday afternoon, the latest bid for that ticket stood at $2,000. This for a package that comes with round-trip airfare. Is that the best Midler fans can do?

Would you exchange your Michael Jackson O2 tickets?


More than 50 million pounds worth of tickets were sold to see Michael Jackson perform at London's O2 Arena where he was scheduled for a series of 50 concerts before his death.

The King of Pop's run at the O2, scheduled to kick off in July, would have been the highest-grossing single concert engagement.
