VetsAid 2022 Joe Walsh & Friends

James Gang, Dave Grohl, Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys and The Breeders

Event Info

VetsAid 2022 will feature sets from a newly reunited James Gang (Joe Walsh, Jimmy Fox and Dale Peters) for a final performance, or “One Last Ride,” with special guests Dave Grohl, Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys and The Breeders. 


Walsh’s vision was to curate an all-Ohio bill for this year’s show. He considers Columbus to be his hometown, the James Gang and Nine Inch Nails hail originally from Cleveland, The Black Keys from Akron, The Breeders from Dayton and Dave Grohl is native to Warren, OH.  “It all started in Ohio,” Walsh reflects. “Picking up my first guitar as a kid in Columbus set me on a musical journey to Kent State, Cleveland and then the world. It is a great privilege for me to share the stage once again with my original James Gang buddies and this incredible group of Ohio rock legends like Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys, The Breeders and Dave Grohl. I believe in Ohio and look forward to celebrating our musical legacy while honoring our veterans with VetsAid 2022.”


All net proceeds will go directly to veterans’ services charities with ties to Ohio; grant applications are open now at www.vetsaid.org/grants. Veterans are important to Walsh, a Gold Star son himself. His father, a flight instructor for the Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star (first US operational jet powered aircraft) died while on active duty on Okinawa when he was just 20 months old. Through the establishment of the VetsAid annual benefit concert, he aims to give back to those who have given so much in sacrifice for this country.
