An all-star collection of talent from across the musical spectrum will pay tribute to Levon Helm of the Band, who died on April 19 following a lengthy bout with cancer. “Love for Levon” will take place at the IZOD Center in E. Rutherford, N.J. on Oct. 3.

The concert brings together rockers old and young, as well as country, soul and gospel musicians who were influenced by Helm’s music. Among the big names are Gregg Allman, Joe Walsh, Bruce Hornsby, Mavis Staples, My Morning Jacket, John Mayer and Dierks Bentley. Musical direction will be provided by Don Was and Larry Campbell, who worked with Helm extensively in the last few years of his life. Unnamed surprise musical guests are also expected to appear.

“We are deeply moved that so many musicians and friends of Levon’s are coming together to celebrate his life and his music, and to help us keep his musical spirit and vision alive in the Midnight Rambles,” Levon’s wife and daughter said via statement. “We want to continue to honor his legacy by creating a musical landmark at the Barn, one that inspires and celebrates Americana music and its heritage.”

TIckets for the concert will go on sale Aug. 29 at Ticketmaster. Net proceeds from the show will go to Helm’s family so that they can keep ownership of their home in Woodstock, N.Y., where Helm had a studio in his barn and held his famous Midnight Rambles.
