Eric Church will be among the artists gathering to celebrate the talent and legacy of the late Levon Helms at the “Love For Levon” benefit concert. The event will take place at the Izod Center in Rutherford, New Jersey on Wednesday, October 3, 2012.
“I can’t possibly overstate what Levon Helm meant to my music or my life,” Eric said. “He was a giant. A man among boys. I miss him personally, but that pales in comparison to how much music will miss his presence.”
The event will also feature performances by Gregg Allman, Dierks Bentley, Marc Cohn, Patty Griffin, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, Jorma Kaukonen, Ray LaMontagne, John Mayer, Robert Randolph, Mavis Staples, Joe Walsh, Lucinda Williams, My Morning Jacket, The Levon Helm Band and many more.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 29 at 11 a.m. EDT at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at (800) 745-3000 and at select Ticketmaster locations. Proceeds from the concert will go to support Levon’s estate and his Midnight Ramble concerts. For more information about “Love for Levon,” please visit www.LoveforLevon.com.
