John Legend, Lorde, OneRepublic, Harry Styles, Haim and Keith Urban will perform at the 2018 MusiCares® Person of the Year tribute concert honoring Fleetwood Mac on January 26. Fleetwood Mac themselves will close the evening’s performances. More guest performers will be announced by the Recording Academy shortly.
Fleetwood Mac is the first band to be honored as the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year and will be celebrated “for their extraordinary creative accomplishments and significant charitable work.” Proceeds from the annual Person of the Year tribute provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.
Past MusiCares Person of the Year honorees include Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, David Crosby, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Don Henley, Billy Joel, Elton John, Quincy Jones, Carole King, Paul McCartney, Luciano Pavarotti, Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt, Lionel Richie, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Barbra Streisand, James Taylor, Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder and Neil Young.
The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute is held during Grammy Week and was last held in New York City in 2003. The celebration culminates with the 60th Annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, January 28, 2018, which will air that night on CBS.
