One of the country’s top annual benefit concerts will return to New York City this year with the 2020 installment of Love Rocks NYC. The one-night event raises money for God’s Love We Deliver, a volunteer-based organization that provides medically tailored meals for people living with severe illnesses.
Announced on Tuesday, the lineup for this year’s fundraising event which takes place at New York City’s The Beacon Theatre on March 12th includes Dave Matthews, Warren Haynes, Marcus King, newly-reunited Chris and Rich Robinson, and more.
Other artists featured in Tuesday’s lineup announcement who will perform at the March 12th concert include Jackson Browne, Cyndi Lauper, Leon Bridges, Ivan Neville, Macy Gray, Jimmie Vaughan, Joss Stone, The War & Treaty, Jimmy Vivino, and Emily King. To make the night even better, the show’s house band will be comprised of Larry Campbell, Eric Krasno, Shawn Pelton, Steve Gadd, Jeff Young, and Ricky Peterson.
Additionally, longtime Letterman announcer Alan Kalter will join as the event’s MC, while Whoopi Goldberg, Paul Shaffer, Ellie Kemper, and Jeff Garlin will come on as co-hosts.
The music event’s co-executive producer, Greg Williams, added in a statement,
“It’s been amazing to see the public’s incredible response to Love Rocks NYC and to our beneficiary, God’s Love We Deliver. There is no roadmap for putting on a concert of this kind. It comes down to a terrific team, a wonderful charity, very hard work and everyone being in it for the right reasons. It’s been an honor, a privilege and a game changer for me to be involved in this project on an annual basis.”
Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 24th, at 10 am EST. Head to the God’s Love We Deliver website for more info on this year’s concert event.
