Eddie Money will be celebrated on Feb. 20 when his family and friends gather to pay tribute to his career. Sammy Hagar, Rick Springfield, George Thorogood, John Waite and Mickey Thomas will be among the featured classic rock performers at “A Star-Studded Tribute to Eddie Money,” at The Saban in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The concert, hosted by comedian Louie Anderson, will benefit MusiCares and the USC Eddie Money Cancer Research Fund. Other surprise guests are expected.

Tickets are selling quickly and are available here.

Money died Sept. 13, 2019, at age 70 after he had developed esophageal cancer. The diagnosis was detailed in a special episode of his AXS TV reality show, Real Money, that aired on Sept. 12.

Born Edward Mahoney in New York on March 21, 1949, Money dropped out of the New York Police Academy in the ’70s to pursue a career in music. His biggest-ever hit was a duet with Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes, “Take Me Home Tonight,” which reached #4 in 1986. He’s also well known for such hits as “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise” and “Walk on Water,” among many others.
