A tribute concert in honor of Fountains Of Wayne co-founder Adam Schlesinger will feature Courtney Love, Smashing Pumpkins‘ James Iha, The Black Keys‘ Patrick Carney and more.
The tribute concert, “Adam Schlesinger, A Music Celebration,” is being organized by Schlesinger’s Fountains Of Wayne bandmate Jody Porter. The virtual event, which will take place on May 5, will benefit MusiCares, which provides support for those in the music industry affected by COVID-19.
“This is a proper musical send-off for my soul brother with a bunch of talented and groovy guests that would make Adam wince,” Porter said.
Other performers will include The Monkees‘ Mickey Dolenz, Sean Ono Lennon, Dashboard Confessional‘s Chris Carrabba, Peter Buck, Mike Viola, Taylor Hanson, Ben Lee, Jesse Malin, Nicole Atkins, and more.
Schlesinger died in April 2020 following complications related to COVID-19.
