On Saturday March 30, 2019, our infamous all-star ensemble of musicians and entertainers will walk the carpet and take the stage at the 7th Annual Rock Against MS Benefit Concert & Award Show at the beautiful and historic downtown Los Angeles Theater on Broadway.
Originally, Steve Stevens and Billy Morrison had an idea for a concert to raise support for Nancy B. Sayle, Founder of the Rock Against MS Foundation, as she continued to fight her battle with Primary Progressive MS. Now 7 years later, Nancy continues to use her platform to bring out an incredible lineup of artists, musicians, comedians and friends in the industry for a once-in-a-lifetime night that raises awareness and support for people just like her whose lives have been impacted by MS.
Join the rock n’ roll movement to help improve the lives of those living with multiple sclerosis!
The foundation will continue the tradition of these concert events for one purpose: helping others with this complex and serious disease live a more quality, holistic centered life. Tickets for the show on Saturday, March 30th will go on sale very soon!
