Light Up the Queen Foundation Announces
2nd Annual Shine A Light On the Queen Rolling Stones Tribute Concert
– December, 2012
On Saturday, February 23, 2013 more than forty of Delaware’s best and brightest musicians will come together once again on the Copeland Theater stage to present the 2nd Annual Shine a Light on the Queen Concert. The evening is a tribute to the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band,” the Rolling Stones and proceeds will benefit the Light Up The Queen Foundation. Each and every song will feature a different lineup of the area’s most talented, influential and prominent musicians representing multiple generations of Wilmington’s music scene. Shine A Light on the Queen 2013 promises to be another unforgettable evening of Rolling Stones music and a celebration of musicians who have played locally in Wilmington for decades and have worked hard to support the Light Up The Queen Foundation. Brad Riesau from the Porch Chops notes, “As a musician on the scene for over 25 years, honoring the Stones and supporting the Queen Theater is something all of us are proud to do. It is a wonderful way for all of us onstage and behind the curtain to thank each other and all of the great friends and fans out there who support us week after week, year after year in the vibrant Delaware music scene.” Mike Hare, Board Chair for the Light Up The Queen Foundation said, “The Light Up The Queen Foundation is truly grateful and humbled to once again be the beneficiary of the convergence of talents of the more than 40 local musicians committed to perform at this year’s Shine A Light concert. It is a great celebration of the music community and promises to be the Rock and Roll show of the year!”
