Willie Nelson and Paul Simon Announce "A Night for Austin" Livestream Benefit

Willie Nelson

Tune in for a two-hour livestream benefit.

On Wednesday, June 10th at 8pm CST, join Willie Nelson, Annie Nelson, Paul Simon and Edie Brickwell as they team up to host a livestream concert to support the city of Austin, Texas.

"A Night for Austin" will support the Austin Community Foundation fund that is focused on Austin's businesses and individuals in need of necessary aid due to the financial losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. 100% of the proceeds from the event will go towards the Austin Community Foundation which aids MusiCares, Red River Cultural District, Six Square, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, Central Texas Food Bank, Southern Smoke and People Fund.

The two-hour livestream, produced by Luck Reunion will present at-home performances from James Taylor, Gary Clark Jr., Bonnie Raitt, Patty Griffin, Norah Jones, Lukas Nelson and more. Ethan Hawke, Owen Wilson, Renée Zellweger, and Woody Harrleson are also set to make special appearances also streaming from their homes. Luck Reunion also stated the concerns of the recent troubles on Instagram stating they are firmly against all forms of racism and hatred in this country.

Earlier this year on April 20th, Willie Nelson hosted an in-home livestream concert "Come and Toke It" celebrating this year's marajuana-filled Monday that featured performances from Elle King, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kasey Musgraves and many other celebrities.

You can catch the event on Twitch, CBS Austin, or live at A Night for Austin.
