Eric Church Excited To Perform At Levon Helm Tribute Concert

10/3/2012

Eric Church says he's really looking forward to tonight's tribute concert honoring The Band's late drummer Levon Helm. The country star tweets that he's "pumped about" Wednesday's "performance at #loveforlevon." Dierks Bentley, Lucinda Williams, and Patty Griffin are also on board for "Love For Levon," along with Joe Walsh, Gregg Allman, John Mayer, and others. Levon Helm died of throat cancer this past April. He was 71. "Love For Levon" will take place at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. In addition to honoring Helm, the show will raise money to help the singer's estate retain his property and continue staging The Midnight Ramble Sessions. Helm began hosting the unique shows at his upstate New York barn in 2004.
