Joe Walsh has gathered together an all-star lineup to help veterans and their families. Walsh will headline his first-ever VetsAid concert, featuring performances by Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban and Gary Clark, Jr. September 20th at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. It will raise money for his newly created non-profit, VetsAid, which will support several already established veterans-based charities. Walsh said “War is hell for everyone involved, I had to do something, and seeing as though rock ‘n’ roll seems to be what I do best, it’s also the least I could do for those who have served and continue to serve our country. We’re all in this together as Americans, and seems to me lately that people are forgetting that.” Tickets go on sale Friday morning at 10.

After saying hi to guests including Alicia Silverstone, Roth danced all night to the sounds of Michael Jackson.
