STAR-STUDDED CELEBRATION AT HOLLYWOOD BOWL CROWNS ARSENIO'S 1,000TH; MADONNA TO HEADLINE LANDMARK EVENT

 Special Show to Benefit Magic Johnson Foundation
 HOLLYWOOD, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Arsenio Hall Show"


celebrates its 1,000th show with a first for late night television when it tapes live at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Thursday, May 13 to an audience of more than 15,000. The unprecedented 1,000th special edition will air on "Arsenio" stations nationwide May 14. In addition to Arsenio Hall and Madonna, the show will include Naughty By Nature, featuring Heavy D, Duran Duran, the Posse, many exciting guests and special surprises.
 In an effort to give back to the community, all revenues from ticket sale profits will benefit the Magic Johnson Foundation, a clearinghouse which distributes funds to organizations on behalf of AIDS education and care.
 Mega-performer Madonna, known for her tireless work on behalf of AIDS, will undoubtedly amaze audiences with the outrageous performance she has planned for the show. The 1,000th special edition will mark Madonna's first "Arsenio" performance (and her first Bowl performance), although she has been a talk guest on his show twice before.
 Rap group Naughty By Nature, joined by Heavy D, will perform "Ready For Dem" from their current smash album "19 Naughty III."
 British sensations Duran Duran, buoyed by their recent chart- topping single, "Ordinary World," and extraordinary success of their comeback self-titled compact disc, will also perform.
 "This is only surpassed by the opportunity to raise money for the Magic Johnson Foundation -- giving an even greater cause for celebration. This will be one of the most important nights of my life and we're gonna make the show liver than live, `large and proper,'" said Hall, the show's host and executive producer.
 The Bowl audience will also be entertained with a pre-show to include hot new stand-up comedy acts and cutting-edge music.
 Affordable, low-priced tickets will be available to the public through Ticketmaster. Levy, Pazanti & Associates at 213-386-8014 will be selling preferred seating and corporate packages, which will provide seats for inner-city youth.
 In January of this year, "The Arsenio Hall Show" began its fifth season in syndication. The show premiered in January 1989 and skyrocketed to fame by capturing a large audience that previously had not watched late night talk shows.
 Syndicated to more than 200 stations covering 98 percent of all U.S. viewing households, "The Arsenio Hall Show" is produced by Arsenio Hall Communications Ltd., in association with Paramount Domestic Television. Hall serves as executive producer.
 The Paramount Television Group is part of the entertainment operations of Paramount Communications Inc.
