Scissor Sisters Part of Super New Year's Stunt

WRITTEN BY

Jay-Z managed to play seven cities in one day, but by splitting up the job, Scissor Sisters, with some help from Black Eyed Peas, Nelly Furtado, and others, will collectively hit cities in five different countries all on New Year's Eve. The massive event, sponsored by Nokia, begins with a show in Hong Kong harbor, with performers to be announced soon. The next stop is Mumbai's Andheri Sports Complex, where Nelly Furtado will headline. Next up is Berlin, where the Scissor Sisters will be playing near the famed Brandenberg Gate. Meanwhile, the Black Eyed Peas will give a performance on the beach in Rio de Janeiro. The finale will take place in New York City. Other artists are expected to be added to the bills in the coming weeks. Nokia will be sponsoring Internet and television broadcasts of the various shows for fans who can't make it, or live on one of the three continents not being hit.

Scissor Sisters also released their latest single today, "Land Of A Thousand Words," and are heading Stateside soon to appear in the NBC soap opera Passions. How very fabulous!

Talk:What continent is this, again?
