Love for Levon concertThe Poughkeepsie Journal today reports that Roger Waters has joined an all-star lineup of musicians at a Levon Helm tribute concert scheduled for October 3rd at the Izod Center (part of the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey).

Organisers announced this afternoon that Waters will perform at "Love for Levon" which will also feature John Mayer, Bruce Hornsby, Ray LaMontagne, Gregg Allman, Joe Walsh of The Eagles, and many others. Tickets are on sale NOW through this direct link and cost $46.50 to $221.50 plus booking fees.

The concert is in honor of Helm, the late Woodstock resident who was a member of The Band and a Grammy-winning solo artist. Helm, along with Rick Danko and Garth Hudson (fellow Band members) took part in Roger's 1990 Wall concert in Berlin. Helm sadly passed away on April 19th this year.

Proceeds from ticket sales will "help support the lasting legacy of Levon Helm by helping his estate keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue The Midnight Ramble Sessions." More information about the show can be found at
