Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne will play a benefit concert on Thursday, August 10th at the Redford Theatre in the Old Redford neighborhood of Detroit to support the historic venue.
Showtime is 7:30 PM. Reserved seats, priced $25, $45, $75, and a limited number of gold circle go on sale this Friday, June 23 at 10am at Ticketmaster.com or at the Redford Theatre during box office hours.
Accompanying Jackson Browne at the benefit concert is long-time bandmate and multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz. All net proceeds raised from the concert will support the Redford Theatre, the Old Redford Re-Development Group and Echopark Guitars in their redevelopment efforts in forming the Old Redford Community Arts Foundation.
“For a while now, I’ve been hearing that Detroit is ‘coming back,’ says Jackson Browne. “I like the idea of it - Detroit has given us so much - some of my favorite cars, and a lot of my favorite music - Motown, Glenn Frey….When my friend Gabriel Currie told me he was moving his guitar factory to Detroit, I was intrigued - here’s a guy from the same neighborhood in LA that I’m from, and he’s moving to Detroit! Now Detroit will be home to Echopark Guitars, another artistic and technical innovator. Gabriel also told me about the renovation of the Redford Theatre. At the heart of this project is a strong belief in community, and the power of art to motivate and inspire. Let us have live music, and theater, and dance! And let us engage youth on the highest possible level.”
