The concerts are scheduled for Saturday, Oct 20th at the HiFiBuys Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA and Sunday, October 21st at the Smirnoff Music Center in Dallas, TX.

"I just couldn't stand by without doing something to help all of the people whose lives have been destroyed by the terrible tragedies of September 11th," said organizer and lead singer of Styx, Tommy Shaw. "I just starting calling up all of my friends to see what we could do. The response has been amazing and we expect to add many more artists to the line up."

"Right now I think it is so important for everyone to be able to participate in the healing process," said lead singer of REO Speedwagon, Kevin Cronin. "We are all feeling so many intense emotions that it's imperative that we channel our energy into doing what we can to help heal ourselves and our country."

"We all just need to get out there and do whatever we can to help remember the heroes who have fallen and feel as though we are contributing to the rebuilding of lives and property that were destroyed on September 11th."

The shows will also feature an "All Star" band comprised of Liberty Devitto from Billy's Joel's band on drums, Derek St. Holmes from Ted Nugent's band on guitar, 38 Special's Jeff Carlisi, and The Producers' Kyle Henderson on bass among others.
