The Rolling Stones‘ Keith Richards is set to reunite with solo backing band the X-Pensive Winos at the annual charity concert Love Rocks, scheduled to be held at New York City’s Beacon Theatre on March 10.
The X-Pensive Winos was formed during the sessions for Richards’ debut solo LP, Talk Is Cheap, in 1988. The band features drummer Steve Jordan, guitarist Waddy Wachtel, bassist Charley Drayton, keyboardist Ivan Neville and singer Sarah Dash. The core lineup also featured on Richards’ 1992 follow-up, Main Offender, and 2015’s Crosseyed Heart.
The Love Rocks concert, to be hosted by Kiefer Sutherland, Mario Cantone, Gina Gershon, Steve Schirripa and Michelle Buteau, will also feature Mavis Staples, Warren Haynes, Melissa Etheridge, Jimmy Vivino, Hozier and Steely Dan guitarist Connor Kennedy, among others.
The event, presented by the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation, will benefit God’s Love We Deliver, an organization founded amid the 1980s AIDS crisis. The group “cooks and home-delivers nutritious, medically tailored meals for people too sick to shop or cook for themselves.”
