Famed guitarist Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones is the latest addition to the lineup for Love Rocks NYC!, an all-star charity concert set to take place at the Beacon Theatre on March 15. The concert has been organized by John Varatos and Greg Williamson, and follows last year’s inaugural event, which reportedly raised $1.5 million for God’s Love We Deliver. All of the organizers’ proceeds will go to the New York City-based charity that delivers nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people in all five boroughs of New York City, Westchester and Nassau Counties, and Hudson County, New Jersey who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves.
Richards joins a lineup that already included Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Donald Fagen, Billy F. Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Gary Clark Jr., Mavis Staples, Ziggy Marley, Andra Day, Trombone Shorty, Marc Cohn, Lucinda Williams, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm with Steve Jordan, Ann Wilson, Patty Smyth, Anthony Hamilton, The Bacon Bros., Bernie Williams, Valerie Simpson, John McEnroe, David Hidalgo, Jimmie Vaughan, Doyle Bramhall II, Ivan Neville, Allen Stone, Tash Neal, Amy Helm, Mike Flanigin and more. The house band for Love Rocks NYC! ’18 will feature Will Lee, Paul Shaffer, Steve Gadd, Shawn Pelton, Eric Krasno, Larry Campbell and Jeff Young.
Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
