This looks cool.

Love For Levon:
Mayer, MMJ, Hornsby, Joe Walsh, Warren, Gregg Allman and More to Play Benefit Concert For Helm


The late Levon Helm was a beloved figure who influenced more than one generation of musicians. Many of those artists who were influenced by The Band drummer will come together on October 3rd at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey for a benefit concert to raise funds for Levonís estate and the Midnight Ramble concerts. Those participating are My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Eric Church, Patty Griffin, Bruce Hornsby, Mavis Staples, Gregg Allman, Dierks Bentley, John Mayer, Joe Walsh, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Marc Cohn, Robert Randolph and the Levon Helm Band.
Longtime Levon collaborator Larry Campbell will serve as musical director along with Don Was. Tickets go on sale August 29th. And you can bet more acts will be added.

If it was at another venue I would consider but that place may just be the worst place I have ever seen music performed at. Horrible sound unless you have the absolute best of seats. Just a horrible arena IMO!!!

100% true....a cavernous tunnel that sucks the sound right out...sounds like a bad mp3...

Particulaly for the groups relying on vocal and harmonies...or acoustic...generally,unless the sound has been fixed,it's a nightmare....I've seen many Banda go way off key there...

Good intent and great lineup....maybe a soundboard tape will emerge

Thanks,Pete....

Things are well...today my wife and I dropped off our youngest at college....I'm so happy for him,but deeply missing having both my boys at home...my youngest is a huge Levon fan who saw at least 5 rambles with us....I wasn't planning to go,but my wife feels we should go and I'll do whatever she asks...she's a heck of a wife and best friend,so I trust whatever she chooses on this....my boys feel we should be there too,so we'll see if we can get some tix....

I hope u r well,Pete and that life is bringing good things your way.....

I'm not a fan of big venues but this is a show I need to be at. What I really need to do is get up to the barn more often. I noticed that there are shows scheduled thru September. I'd love to move out of this rat race up to Woodstock and volunteer at the barn.

Well,after all my complaining,my wife went and got 2 tix....now I'm glad I'm going....

Ray...we had a place in Woodstock,sold it,and now rent it often...so we still spend a nice amount of time there...I'm with you...would love to live up there full time,but just not practical at this stage of life....

Roger Waters is an interesting addition. Wonder if it is because Levon was part of the Wall show in Berlin?

Roger is a huge fan of "the band" and "john prine" believe it or not.

I dont think this show belongs at ANY arena, quite frankly. A tribute to Levon isnt an arena spectacle. A theater where the sound quality is paramount is the ideal place for his music to be celebrated.

Not a fan of the venue but I'm really excited to be attending.

I saw Waters play " The Wall" there and the sound was way better than I recalled from shows I'd seen there in the past. Hopefully they dial it in well for this gig also.
