3 Music Legends Team Up for Harvey Benefit Concert at Bass Hall
Texans and music legends Clint Black, Don Henley and Lyle Lovett will come together at Bass Hall on Nov. 28 for a concert benefiting victims of Hurricane Harvey.
All ticket sales from the show, Helping Texans: A Hurricane Harvey Benefit Concert, will go toward the North Texas Community Foundation's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which helps fund charitable organizations and programs working in Houston and Aransas County. Black, Henley and Lovett, along with Ed Bass, will advise the funding allocations. According to a news release, Bass will underwrite all expenses for the concert so that full proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships go toward Hurricane Harvey relief.
The concert is especially personal for Black, a Houston native.
"We all watched on the news as Harvey destroyed much of Southeast Texas and Houston, my hometown," Black said in a news release. "We braced ourselves through the night as the flood waters grew closer to our family's doorsteps in Houston and Katy. My mom, brothers, niece and nephews were all very fortunate, and I knew I had to find a way to help those who weren't so lucky, to recover and rebuild what was lost in the hurricane. I'm really proud to have friends like, Don, Lyle and everyone at Bass Performance Hall who'll join together for the cause."
Tickets will go on sale Friday. More information can be found on Bass Hall's website.
