According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jack White, Neil Young, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Beck, The Black Keys, Crosby Stills & Nash, Tom Jones, and Norah Jones are among the acts who will perform at the concert, which is set for February 6th. Don Was will serve as the evening’s musical director, and additional performers will be announced in the future.
Presented by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the MusiCares Person of the Year honors musicians for their achievement in the music industry and dedication to philanthropy. Past recipients include Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Brian Wilson, Neil Young, Bono, Stevie Wonder, and Aretha Franklin.
Proceeds from the event will support for the MusiCares organization, which provides financial and medical help to musicians in need.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Dylan will soon release an anthology of The Basement Tapes and is also prepping a new studio album. That’s all while he gears up for a new US tour, which kicks off in mid-October.
