Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Joe Walsh has unveiled the star-studded line-up for his fourth annual VetsAid Concert this Veteran’s Day.
This year’s line-up is one of the most impressive yet, with a number of rock legends headlining the festival including Jon Bon Jovi, Willie Nelson, Eddie Vedder, Daryl Hall, James Hetfield, Steven Van Zandt, Brandon Flowers, and more.
The ticketed livestream event will take place on December 12 via vetsaid.veeps.com.
Along with Walsh’s rock peers, a number of A-list artists across genres will be joining the Eagles guitarist including Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires, Vince Gill, Tim Mcgraw, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, Jewel, Ben Harper, and many more.
Tickets will be available starting Wednesday, November 18 at 12:00 pm EST at vetsaid.veeps.com and will be priced from $20 with discounts available for active-duty military and veterans.
“For the past 3 years we’ve held this glorious traveling circus in cities across the country with a day-long rock and roll festival and jobs fair to support our veterans and their families,” said Walsh.
“Typically, we fill up an arena, play for 5 hours, and raise a bunch of money – nearly $1.5 million to date – to help our veterans get the care and support they deserve. But because of COVID this year, we’re going virtual as so many things are,” Walsh continued.
“Our veterans’ community already suffers from increased poverty rates, mental health issues, re-entry difficulties, and personal crises in the best of times. During this pandemic, they are especially vulnerable. I’m proud of this nationwide tradition we have built, and I can’t think of a better way to remember and honor the men and women who have served our country this holiday season than by helping us raise funds to support their essential and basic needs.
Join us online for a worldwide broadcast of unique musical performances of all kinds, never-before-seen VetsAid footage from years past, and great stories from me and some of the greatest musicians in the world this December 12th!”
Walsh initially launched VetsAid in 2017 with an inaugural concert at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, VA. The second festival event was in Tacoma, WA, and the third in Houston, TX.
Past shows have included performances by musicians including James Taylor, Chris Stapleton, Don Henley, ZZ Top, Sheryl Crow, The Doobie Brothers, Zac Brown Band, Jason Isbell, Keith Urban, Haim, Gary Clark Jr., and Joe’s brother-in-law Ringo.
All net proceeds from the 2020 festival will go directly to the veterans’ services charities selected through a vetting process coordinated in tandem with the Combined Arms Institute. Criteria for this year’s selection process will
