The Allman Betts Band, Wynonna and more are on board for the “Big Love Benefit Concert” hosted by Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen and singer-songwriter Lauren Monroe and benefitting the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. The show will stream via nugs.net on Saturday, January 23 beginning at 9 p.m. ET /6 p.m. PT.
Also set to perform are Billy Idol, Tommy Shaw of STYX, Myles Kennedy, Matt Sorum and Clayton Q with special appearances by Chicago, Sammy Hagar and more. Allen and Monroe will take the stage with the Big Love Band along with a special introduction from Bret Michaels of Poison. Rick Allen spoke about the cause in a statement.
“We endeavor on a daily basis, through our music and through our 501C3 Raven Drum Foundation Project Resiliency to serve, educate and empower people and communities recovering from crisis,” Allen said. “We cannot envision a more important and useful way in which to give back than this benefit concert.”
“To further spread our mission of the past 20 years of unity and inclusiveness, we released the EP Big Love in July and are collaborating with other charities and artists who have a voice and message of healing,” Monroe added. “We will perform the song in this virtual musical benefit. BIG LOVE is a powerful anthem for this moment in time with 100% of the proceeds from ‘Big Love’ having been donated back to the Raven Drum rapid response fund.”
The Big Love Benefit Concert coincides with a celebrity auction. Up on the block are a Billy Idol signed army jacket, a Yamaha Drum set signed by Rick Allen, a virtual meet & greet with band Florence & The Machine and more with proceeds also benefitting Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
