An all-star lineup will perform this weekend to aid a pair of crucial music charities.

Ringo Starr, Cheap Trick, John Oates, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Bush's Gavin Rossdale, Slash of Guns N' Roses, Darryl "DMC" McDaniels and AWOLNATION are among those taking part in (DE) TOUR, a virtual music festival kicking off at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, via RollingLiveStudios.com.

The artists will perform from their homes as well as socially distanced at iconic music venues in new York and Los Angeles. Several noted music photographers, including Detroit native Lynn Goldsmith, Danny Clinch, Mick Rock, Henry Diltz and Bob Gruen, will also make appearances.

Proceeds from the event — co-sponsored by the Morrison Hotel Gallery, Rolling Live Studios and Spotify— go to the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) and MusiCares.

An $11 VIP ticket, via nocapshows.com, includes a backstage Zoom meet & greet with performers as well as access to exclusive merchandise.
