From the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan to the Top of the Standard in Los Angeles to Lola’s Trailer Park in Fort Worth, TX, musicians are banding together for The Concert Across America to End Gun Violence on Sunday, September 25th. Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash, Marc Cohn and Harlem’s Gospel for Teens will headline the concert scheduled for the Beacon Theatre on Sept. 25. 

(Tickets go on sale Friday, August 12 at 12:00pm at and all Ticketmaster locations. #ConcertAcrossAmerica to #EndGunViolence.)

Spearheaded by Massachusetts-based Stop Handgun Violence (SHV), Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, and dozens of other organizations committed to reducing gun violence, this nationwide effort will feature a diverse array of artists performing at venues ranging from churches and school gymnasiums to honky-tonks, hotel rooftops and theatres.

From the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA to the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA, artists will be performing to give voice to the more than five million Americans who have been murdered by a firearm since the mass shooting at the University of Texas on Aug. 1, 1966.

SHV Founder John Rosenthal said, “In the midst of America’s epidemic of gun violence that results in 90 deaths, over 200 injuries and a mass shooting every day, this powerful coast-to-coast concert and organizing effort will raise awareness and – very importantly – get out the vote on gun violence prevention in the November elections and beyond.”
