Alice Cooper and Foo Fighters to perform at Aerosmith MusiCares tribute

Alice Cooper and the Foo Fighters are among the acts set to pay tribute to Aerosmith when they will be honored with the 2020 MusiCares Person Of The Year Award in January.

The January 24 event will see the Boston rockers recognized for their considerable philanthropic efforts over five decades and impact on American music history; Aerosmith follows Fleetwood Mac as only the second band ever to receive the music industry honor.

The MusiCares Person Of The Year tribute - celebrating its 30th anniversary - is one of the most prestigious events held during Grammy Week. Proceeds from the event provide essential support for MusiCares and its vital safety net of health and human services programs, ensuring music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.

The Person of the Year gala will begin with a reception and silent auction offering an exclusive and unparalleled selection of luxury items, VIP experiences and one-of-a-kind celebrity memorabilia for bidding guests. The reception, along with a silent auction, will be followed by a gala dinner, tribute concert featuring renowned musicians and other artists, and the award presentation.

Other confirmed artists for the Aerosmith tribute event include Gary Clark Jr., H.E.R., John Legend, John Mayer, the Jonas Brothers, Emily King and Yola; additional guest performers are still to be announced.

Following the tribute concert, Aerosmith will resume their ongoing Las Vegas residency in late January; they recently announced a series of summer 2020 shows across the UK and Europe as part of their 50th anniversary tour.

Aerosmith were named the No. 6 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 2019 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
