FAIRFAX, VA (CelebrityAccess) — Rock legend Joe Walsh announced that he's staging a benefit concert to support VetsAid, his new 501(C)(3) certified national non-profit to help veterans and their families.
Thus far, the announced lineup includes Zac Brown Band, Gary Clark Jr., and Keith Urban, with additional artists to be announced.
The event will take place on Sept. 20th at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, VA, and is intended to become an annual event.
Joe has been involved with veterans’ related causes for years, supporting various charities, visiting the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and offering free guitar lessons to the wounded veterans there. He has campaigned for his good friend, Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, an Iraq War veteran and double amputee.
Joe aims to use this platform to raise funds and awareness for the still urgent and significant needs of our returning soldiers. Through the establishment of VetsAid and its annual benefit concert, he wants to give back to those who have given so much in sacrifice for our country.
