A tribute concert in memory of Eddie Money will take place next month, with Sammy Hagar and Rick Springfield are among the artists who’ll take part.
The show takes place on Feb. 20 at the Canyon venue in Beverley Hills. Tickets are on sale now, with proceeds to benefit the MusiCares and the USC Eddie Money Cancer Research Fund organizations.
Also on the bill are George Thorogood, John Waite, and Mickey Thomas. It will be hosted by comedian Louie Anderson, and it is expected that additional guests will be announced. A statement issued by the promoters said, “Eddie’s family and friends [will] gather to pay tribute to a life well-lived and a talent unsurpassed. Throughout his illustrious career, Eddie Money sold over 28 million records worldwide. But perhaps even more important than his musical legacy is his reputation as a hard-working good guy who always remembered and made time for family, friends, fans and those who lent him a hand along the road to stardom.”
Money died at the age of 70 in September 2019, a month after he revealed he’d been fighting cancer.
