Love For Levon
The GRAMMYs just announced that The Band’s late drummer/singer Levon Helm will be the subject of a tribute performance at this weekend’s 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
The Band’s Levon Helm is getting his due credit with a documentary of his own, set to screen in theaters nationwide next year.
Waters, who just wrapped up a huge three year tour where he performed Pink Floyd’s The Wall every night, will be playing in relatively stripped down surroundings. Coincidentally, the one time when Waters performed with Helm was at Waters’ one-off performance of The Wall in Germany on July 21, 1990.
When much-beloved drummer/singer Levon Helm of The Band passed away on April 19, musicians from all genres and generations paid tribute at their concerts, in interviews and on Twitter. But on October 3rd at New Jersey’s Izod Center, a number of legends will pay tribute to him at a concert called “Love For Levon.”
