Rock after Opera

As mentioned elsewhere, a group called Lord T. and Eloise is going to do a performance of their "Aristocrunk" music onstage, in front of the Turandot set, after the October 13th performance. I have posted a question at nfcs.net about a group or performer to engage next season--preferably one who might have some affection for Opera. Here are some of the suggestions so far. We hear that most of these folks have at least a passing interest in opera.
Linda Ronstadt
Kristen Chenoweth
Bono and U2
Celine Dione
Harry Belafonte
Aretha Franklin
Stevie Wonder
Michael Bolton
Freddy Mercury (but he's dead...)
Alexa Joel (Billy Joe's Daughter)
Christina Aguilera
Phoebe Snow
Jill Scott
Nneenna Freelon
Diana Krall
Jubilant Sykes
Elvis Costello
John Legend
Alicia Keyes
Arcade Fire
Broken Social Scene
