Sammy Hagar and Cheap Trick added to Aerosmith MusiCares tribute

Sammy Hagar and Cheap Trick are among the latest acts confirmed to pay tribute to Aerosmith when they will be honored with the 2020 MusiCares Person Of The Year Award later this month.

Following news that Alice Cooper, Foo Fighters and Gary Clark Jr will perform at the January 24 event in Los Angeles, organizers have also announced the addition of Johnny Depp, LeAnn Rimes, Luis Fonsi, Ashley McBryde and Gavin DeGraw to the evening’s lineup.

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.

Aerosmith follows Fleetwood Mac as only the second band ever to receive the music industry honor, which has primarily recognized the work of solo artists to date.

The Boston rockers will resume their ongoing Deuces Are Wild Las Vegas residency at the end of the month.

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