Toto‘s Steve Lukather and longtime Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens are among the many artists who will perform at the eighth annual Rock Against MS Benefit Concert, scheduled for Saturday, March 21, at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles.
The lineup also includes former Alice Cooper guitarist Orianthi, MC5‘s Wayne Kramer, Jack Russell’s Great White, King’s X frontman Dug Pinnick, pop star Tiffany, Mr. Big/Ace Frehley drummer Matt Starr, and many more.
The concert will include tributes to many of the musicians who died in 2019, like Eddie Money, The Cars‘ Ric Ocasek, Cream drummer Ginger Baker, The Monkees‘ Peter Tork, and surf-guitar legend Dick Dale.
The event’s goal is to raise awareness and educate the public about multiple sclerosis, while raising funds for the Rock Against MS Foundation’s planned MS support centers, dubbed The Rock House. The facilities will offer a variety of free activities and programs people with the disease.
“The Rock House will allow us to provide classes, community programs, basic care and expanded resources free of charge to those whose lives have been affected by MS,” explains says Rock Against MS Foundation founder Nancy B. Sayle.
The fundraiser will be hosted by Mad TV star Debra Wilson and comic Joe Sib, and also will feature a silent auction and awards presentations.
