3rd Annual Love Rocks NYC

The Beacon Theatre rocked on March 7, 2019 when an incredible lineup of rock, soul and blues stars came together to play the third annual Love Rocks NYC, our annual benefit concert, which raised $2.3 million dollars. Since its inception, the Love Rocks NYC concert series has raised nearly $6 million dollars. Co-produced by designer John Varvatos and top NYC real estate broker Greg Williamson with Nicole Rechter of UpperWest Music Group, the sold-out show was hosted by Martin Short, Bill Murray, Kevin Bacon and Paul Shaffer, and included spectacular performances by legends such as Robert Plant, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Sheryl Crow, Buddy Guy, Billy F Gibbons, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Mavis Staples, Jimmie Vaughan,  and Bernie Williams, along with dynamos such as Hozier, Grace Potter, Marcus King, Doyle Bramhall II, Lukas Nelson, and Larkin Poe. The evening concluded with all of the artists returning to the stage for a rousing group performance of “Feelin Alright.”
