The Izod Center was filled with love on Wednesday night and some of music’s biggest names came together to honor Levon Helm and his legacy. Grammy Awards winners Don Was and Larry Campbell served as co-musical directors for the concert, while Keith Wortman produced. All net proceeds from the benefit concert will help support the lasting legacy of Levon Helm by helping his estate keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue The Midnight Ramble Sessions. We were lucky enough to get some photos of the stars backstage on the red carpet. Check out the photos, as well as the star-studded line-up, below!
