Foo Fighters, Gavin Rossdale, Sheryl Crow, Deadmau5, Carly Simon, Sammy Hagar and more are playing virtual sets for the Rock 'N' Relief benefit concert this weekend (March 5 and 6). The two-day livestream event was organized by Linda Perry and will raise money for Sean Penn's CORE Response's (Community Organized Relief Effort) mobile COVID-19 vaccination program, with the goal of making vaccines accessible to Los Angeles' most vulnerable communities.
“As a mother and fellow member of this community, I wanted to do something to lift spirits and send a positive message of hope and humanity to all the healthcare workers and those on the front lines, as well as raise awareness and funds to support CORE and their relief efforts,” Perry wrote in a statement. “When I first put the word out, many jumped on board to contribute; we had over 150 bands submit to play… We are extremely overwhelmed by the level of support we are getting from these rebel artists who are generously donating their time and so grateful for the backing from the biggest players in the media space. Can’t wait to get the word out and provide much-needed funding for CORE while entertaining and lifting the spirits of the nation.”
Perry will also performing live, along with Silversun Pickups, Dawes, Perry Farrell, Jewell, Miguel, Kevin Bacon, Macy Gray, L7’s Donita Sparks, Aloe Blacc, Juliette Lewis and the Licks, James Blunt, Gary Barlow, and more.
Rock 'N' Relief is happening 3-9:30pm ET / 12-6:30 PT on Friday (March 5) and Saturday (March 6) and can be viewed here. See the full lineup below.
