Joe Walsh Is No Ordinary Average Guy

Joe Walsh announced that his second annual VetsAid Concert raised $795,000 in grants.   The sold-out concert featured awesome performances by Walsh, Don Henley, James Taylor, Chris Stapleton, Haim and a special appearance from Sir Ringo Starr at the Tacoma Dome in Washington on Veterans Day last year.

Providing support to organizations that care for America’s veterans as well as their families is deeply personal to Walsh, himself a Gold Star survivor whose father died while on active duty on Okinawa, Japan when Walsh was just 20 months old.
 
According to the press release,
 
 “VetsAid – the shows, the old friends coming together to make music, the new friends I’ve made along the way and the veterans community that has so warmly welcomed me – is quickly becoming one of the great joys and privileges of my life. I’m so grateful for the support we’ve received and I’m proud to be able to do what I can and for a population that does so much and asks for so little,” Walsh said recently. “It was always my intention to make this a traveling circus and bring the love to as many corners of this great country as possible. I wanted to take the show south, someplace a bit warmer than Tacoma was and, well, if there are any other basketball fans out there like me… On Sunday, November 10th, 2019, VetsAid is coming to Clutch City!”
