Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck to Play Benefit for Inner-City Chicago School
-- Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck have added a special benefit show to their current U.S. co-headlining tour. The two influential musicians will hit the stage at Chicago's House of Blues on October 29 for the seventh annual School Rocks concert to raise money for San Miguel School Chicago. All proceeds from the event will help fund the facility's scholarship programs and go toward providing community support for the urban students who attend the school.
As with the other concerts on Wilson and Beck's tour, the School Rocks show also will feature appearances by Brian's fellow Beach Boys band mates Al Jardine and David Marks. Wilson and Beck will play separate sets with their respective backing groups and also will team up for several songs. Their co-headlining outing winds down the following night, October 30, with a show in Milwaukee.
Since they began in 2007, the School Rocks benefit concerts have brought in $2.5 million for San Miguel School scholarships. Among the many famous musicians who serve as chairs for School Rocks are Styx's James "JY" Young, Cheap Trick's Bun E. Carlos, The Yardbirds' Jim McCarty and founding Ides of March/Survivor member Jim Peterik.
