AEROSMITH To Pay Tribute To The Blues At Special NY Gig

January 28, 2003

AEROSMITH will team up with other music biz stars and legends B.B. King, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, Aaron Neville, Macy Gray, and Buddy Guy for a special performance at New York's famous Radio City Music Hall on Friday, Feb. 7.

This once-in-a-lifetime lineup of music greats will benefit the Blues Music Foundation — a new nonprofit charitable organization that supports blues education and other programs around the country.

Filmed for later theatrical release, the show will also feature performances by Mos Def, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Keb Mo, Dr. John, David Johansen, Vernon Reid, Shemekia Copeland, Mavis Staples, Gregg Allman and Chuck D. The benefit concert kicks off a year-long celebration as part of "Year of the Blues" (as declared by the United States Congress).
