My Morning Jacket at Williamsburg Park - 8/19/12 (more by David Andrako)
My Morning Jacket

A cavalcade of music talent is coming out to pay tribute to The Band's late, great Levon Helm (who lost his battle with cancer in April) at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ on October 3. Performers include John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Eric Church, Gregg Allman, Dierks Bentley, Marc Cohn, Patty Griffin, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, Jorma Kaukonen, The Levon Helm Band, Robert Randolph, Mavis Staples, Joe Walsh, Lucinda Williams and "More Legendary Surprise Guests" to appear as well.

Tickets for the show go on sale Wednesday, August 29 at 11 AM, with a Citicard presale starting Friday, August 24 at 10 AM. There will also be a Live Nation presale on August 29 at 10 AM.

All net proceeds from the concert will help support "the lasting legacy of Levon Helm by helping his estate keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue The Midnight Ramble Sessions."

... or Robbie could pay Levon's family the back royalties owed him from his time in The Band, then Levon's family could buy Ulster County outright. Just sayin'

i'd expect or at least hope chris & rich robinson to show for this, as well as phil and bobby, and probably donald fagen. levon's musical reach was incredible, this could be amazing.

maybe Dylan will show.......

Izod seems kinda ambitious for this. this is a theater show. an arena doesn't make sense.

Agreed with 4:26. Dylan won't show, but he could conceivably make an appearance. His tour doesn't resume until a few days later.

that shithole izod center probably costs the same amount to rent as the beacon theatre

WAY over reaching on this.

There will be no "net proceeds" to contribute to Levon's barn.

Posted by Tommy | August 23, 2012 6:18 PM

Bruce, Dylan, and Phil Lesh will all be there
