Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Bonnie Raitt will headline KCSN 88.5 FM/Los Angeles’ next benefit concert on Monday, Feb. 22, at the Valley Performing Arts Center at California State University, Northridge.
A Los Angeles music icon, Bonnie Raitt is the latest music legend to take the stage in support of KCSN and its annual benefit concert series. Past concerts have featured performances by such artists as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Jackson Browne, Stephen Stills, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Conor Oberst and Sarah McLachlan.
“Bonnie Raitt is one of the most influential artists in our lifetime,” said KCSN General Manager Sky Daniels. “She is a legend in the Los Angeles music scene, and her philanthropic efforts and social activism make her one of rock’s most honored persons. KCSN is grateful for her support in playing our benefit concert.”
Joining Raitt as part of the KCSN benefit concert will be Los Angeles artist Maia Sharp. A CSUN music alumna, Sharp has written, performed and produced songs with such artists as Carole King, The Dixie Chicks and Trisha Yearwood. Billboard Magazine has said Sharp “conjures the allure of yesteryear’s Brill Building luminaries.”
KCSN members have an opportunity to purchase tickets for the show via Ticketmaster with the member’s passcode in a special pre-sale arrangement beginning Thursday, Dec. 3, at 10 a.m. Members of the general public can purchase tickets beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 4, via Ticketmaster or at the Valley Performing Arts Center’s box office.
