Return to Sin City: A Tribute to Gram Parsons, a two-show tribute to the late country-rock performer, will benefit the Musicians Assistance Program (MAP). MAP funds addiction treatment for members of the music industry.
Performers at the Los Angeles concerts (July 9 at the Santa Barbara Bowl and July 10 at the Universal Amphitheatre) will include Keith Richards, Norah Jones, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, and Dwight Yoakam.
Parsons died of an overdose in 1973.
Editor’s Note: The entertainment industry is acutely aware of the dangers of alcohol and other drug misuse, and can potentially be a powerful local ally in raising awareness and funds to support addiction treatment and prevention. Reach out to local musicians and other performers in your community and enlist their help!
