The event is May 10th in Seattle
Additional performers for the 2018 MusiCares Concert For Recovery benefit honoring GRAMMY winner Mike McCready of Pearl Jam have been announced. Star Anna, Mark Arm and Robin Zander will join previously announced performers Latin GRAMMY winner Barrett Martin, GRAMMY winner Slash, multi-GRAMMY winner Chad Smith; artists Duff McKagan, Mike Ness and Heart’s Nancy Wilson. Joel McHale will be the host. The evening will also feature a special performance by McCready and friends Tim DiJulio, Chris Friel, Rick Friel, Mike Musburger, Danny Newcomb, Paul Passarelli, Kim Virant, and Gary Westlake. The event takes place Thursday, May 10th at The Showbox in Seattle.
Presented by Amazon Music, the concert will benefit MusiCares, an affiliated charity of the Recording Academy with an outstanding four-star rating from Charity Navigator. McCready will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award in recognition of his significant dedication and support to MusiCares and the music community, in addition to his commitment to helping others in the addiction recovery process. MusiCares ensures music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical, and personal need and it provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery resources.
The concert is nearly sold out. Remaining tickets are priced at $500. All tickets will include a buffet. Tickets can be purchased via the GRAMMY website.
In addition, a one-of-a-kind Nixon Chris Cornell Sentry timepiece that is touring to Nixon’s flagship retail locations in London and Paris in the spring of 2018, will be auctioned off live at the Concert For Recovery.
