Dave Matthews, Jackson Browne And Cyndi Lauper To Play Love Rocks NYC

Dave Matthews, Jackson Browne and Cyndi Lauper are set to perform at the fourth annual Love Rocks NYC concert, scheduled to take place at New York’s Beacon Theatre on March 12.

Chris Robinson, Rich Robinson, Warren Haynes, Leon Bridges, Macy Gray, Jimmy Vaughan and Ivan Neville are among the other musicians featured on the lineup, led by the CBS Orchestra’s Will Lee.

Joss Stone, The War & Treaty, Jimmy Vivono, Emily King, March Cohn, Pedrito Martinez, Sue Foley and Marcus King are also set to perform at the event, which is to be co-hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, Paul Shaffer, Ellie Kemper and Jeff Garlin. Alan Kalter will be serving as MC.

The concert will raise funds for God’s Love We Deliver, which cooks and home-delivers nutritious, medically tailored meals for the needy. Founded in 1985 as a response to the AIDS pandemic, the non-profit now serves people living with more than 200 different diagnoses.

Since their launch in 2017, the annual Love Rocks NYC concerts have helped raise more than $9 million, according to the producers.

As the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation has underwritten all concert expenses, the entire proceeds from the event will directly benefit God’s Love We Deliver.

“It’s been amazing to see the public’s incredible response to Love Rocks NYC and to our beneficiary, God’s Love We Deliver,” Love Rocks NYC co-executive producer, Greg Williamson is quoted as saying, by Rolling Stone. “There is no roadmap for putting on a concert of this kind. It comes down to a terrific team, a wonderful charity, very hard work and everyone being in it for the right reasons. It’s been an honor, a privilege and a game changer for me to be involved in this project on an annual basis.”

“When we started Love Rocks NYC four years ago, there was never a thought that it would become one of the most anticipated concerts of the year,” added co-executive producer John Varvatos. “All of these incredible artists give their time, talent, passion, and hearts for this amazing cause. Music is a connecter that brings the artists, fans, and people in need together.”
