Foo Fighters, Sheryl Crow, Gavin Rossdale and Sammy Hagar are among a number of artists set to perform virtually for the Rock ‘N’ Relief livestream concert on March 5 and 6.
The event, curated by Linda Perry, is a benefit fundraiser for Sean Penn‘s CORE Response. The organization conducts mobile COVID-19 vaccination programs to reach the most vulnerable communities in Los Angeles.
The roster of artists also features Deadmau5, Carly Simon, and Perry Farrell.
The two-day event’s curator Perry, who is also slated to play, said, “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 added that she is extremely overwhelmed by the level of support she is getting from the “rebel artists” who are generously donating their time.
The Rock ‘N’ Relief livestream, which consists of virtual and live performances, will be available live via Rolling Stone‘s YouTube channel and Amazon Music‘s Twitch channel.
