Kevin Mazur/WireImageSting usually holds the biennial charity concert for his Rainforest Fund in the spring, but this year, he’s hosting a winter-themed show in December…and his pals Bruce Springsteen and James Taylor are among the stars who have RSVP’d for the bash.

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” — The Revlon Concert for the Rainforest Fund, will take place December 14 at New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall, located a few blocks away from the intersection of 57th Street and 9th Avenue. 57th & 9th is, of course, the title of Sting’s latest album, which is his first pop/rock collection in more than a decade.

Joining Sting, Springsteen and Taylor on the bill are ’60s girl-group legends Darlene Love and Ronnie Spector. All four of these artists have something in common: They’ve all released successful Christmas songs or albums, so it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll hear those holiday tunes at the show. “Festive surprises” also are promised at the event.

The last time the show was held, in 2014, the lineup included Sting and Taylor, as well as Paul Simon, Stephen Stills, Dionne Warwick and Kevin Spacey.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now, ranging from $150 to $600 each. Proceeds will go to support the work of the Rainforest Fund, which preserves the rainforests of the world, and helps indigenous people in Brazil, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Peru, Nicaragua, Mexico, Indonesia and many other nations. Since the charity was founded in 1989, these all-star concerts have raised $30 million.
