Roger Waters holds Music Heals Benefit Concert in Washington DC Print E-mail
Written by Matt

Roger Waters MusicHeals 2015 concert Tickets go on sale Friday at 10am EDT for Music Heals, an exceptional one night only concert, where some of the world’s biggest recording artists will join forces to raise money for MusiCorps - a charity supporting injured service men and women and their families. MusiCorps Band is made up of injured service members who have learned, and in some cases relearned, how to play instruments through the charity.

The concert, being held at the DAR Constitution Hall, a venue which seats around 3,700, will see Roger Waters and the musicians of MusiCorps join with special guests which include Billy Corgan, Sheryl Crow and Tom Morello.

Roger Waters has supported MusiCorps for a number of years and served as a mentor to members of the MusiCorps Band, playing with the veterans at the Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC and encouraging their love of music as part of the rehabilitation process.

Roger Waters said: "The work I have done over the last few years with these men and women has been some of the most rewarding work I have ever done."

MusiCorps is a non-profit charitable organization which helps wounded veterans play music and recover their lives. Praised by the Wall Street Journal as “revolutionary,” the conservatory-level program enables the wounded to learn, relearn, and perform music as a core part of their rehabilitation.

To purchase tickets, visit this direct link from 10am EDT on Friday, June 26th.
