The name of their joint show is Helping Texas: A Hurricane Harvey Benefit Concert. It will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 28 at Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth.
Helping Texas will be a one-night-only event. Tickets will go on sale via the Bass Hall website on Sept. 22. You can also call 817-212-4280 for ticket purchases. All proceeds will go to The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund at the North Texas Community Foundation.
Black, Henley and Lovett will personally help choose where to allocate the funds donated. Local relief programs between Houston and Aransas County will benefit the most from these donations. Furthermore, Fort Worth billionaire Ed Bass will cover upfront event expenses. That way, every last bit of the benefit’s proceeds can go to these local charities.
Country icon Clint Black hails from Houston. For him, being a part of Helping Texas is personal.
“We braced ourselves through the night as the floodwaters grew closer to our family’s doorsteps in Houston and Katy,” Black said in a press release. “My mom, brothers, niece and nephews were all very fortunate and I knew I had to find a way to help those who weren’t so lucky, to recover and rebuild what was lost in the hurricane. I’m really proud to have friends like, Don, Lyle and everyone at Bass Performance Hall who’ll join together for the cause.”
Don Henley calls the event “another example of Texans being Texans” and is proud to be a part of it. Additionally, Lyle Lovett echoes his fellow artist’s sentiment. He says he is honored to join Henley and Black on stage to support those Harvey has displaced.
Harvey caused more damage than any hurricane in American history with the exception of Katrina. It has drawn over $180 billion worth of damage and 203,000 homes affected by the floods. So, when artists join together and step out on stage in the name of Texas, it’s a real blessing.
