Stars Line-Up For Extravagant Bat Mitzvah Party

50 CENT, TOM PETTY, STEVIE NICKS and members of AEROSMITH and THE EAGLES joined forces to create one of the year's greatest live line-ups at the weekend (26-27NOV05), when they played a private Bat Mitzvah celebration gig.

Multi-millionaire DAVID H BROOKS paid a reported $10 million (GBP5.6 million) to hire the artists to perform at his daughter ELIZABETH's party at New York City venue The Rainbow Room.

Brooks is said to have chartered his company jet to pick up Aerosmith rockers STEVEN TYLER and JOE PERRY from their Saturday (26NOV05) concert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

He reportedly paid the WALK THIS WAY stars $2 million (GBP1.1 million) to play a 45-minute set, while 50 Cent is thought to have received $500,000 (GBP278,000).

Petty wowed the gathering with an acoustic performance, while The Eagles stars JOE WALSH and DON HENLEY played alongside FLEETWOOD MAC singer Nicks.

Other acts to perform at the extravagant event included CIARA, NICOLE RICHIE's fiance DJ AM and saxophonist KENNY G.

However, Brooks has denied the reported cost of the event. He told the New York Daily News, "All dollar figures vastly exaggerated. This was a private event and we do not wish to comment on details of the party."
