The show promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime affair. In addition to individual and group performances throughout the event, superstars will band together with other celebrities at the end of the night to perform an original song composed by Mr. Derringer entitled "Dawn of Love". DiscLive CDs will include this special performance and the track will also be available for download.
Charity proceeds raised through the event will go to the John Entwistle Foundation, who will then disseminate funds to the American Red Cross and the Florida Hurricane Relief Fund.
