LOS ANGELES — Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, John Mayer, Gregg Allman and several other musicians are getting together to pay tribute to the late Levon Helm.

The “Love for Levon” benefit concert will be held Oct. 3 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. It will include performances from such artists as My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Patty Griffin, Bruce Hornsby, Mavis Staples and Joe Walsh.

The influential Grammy-winning singer and drummer for The Band died of throat cancer earlier this year at age 71.
Tickets go on sale to the public Aug. 29. Proceeds from the concert will support Levon’s estate and his Midnight Ramble concerts.

Don Was and Larry Campbell will serve as co-musical directors.

Other performers will include Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams and Marc Cohn.
