Homeward Bound Concert To Raise Funds For Homeless Community
November 4, 2019
On Thursday, January 23rd, Red Light Management and Live Nation will host the first ever Homeward Bound Concert, a one-night-only affair at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. The evening will benefit PATH and feature A-List appearances by Jason Mraz, Fitz and The Tantrums, Ingrid Michaelson, Scarypoolparty, a rare public performance by The Doors’ Robby Krieger & John Densmore, Dave Stewart and Kaya Stewart, Phillip Phillips, Maddie Poppe, Morgxn and more to be announced in the coming weeks.
Created by Red Light Management’s Jonathan Shank, the Homeward Bound benefit show was born out of the need to raise awareness & much-needed funding for the homeless community in California. All proceeds from this special night will benefit PATH(People Assisting The Homeless), a long-running L.A.-based foundation that provides permanent housing, case management, medical and mental healthcare, benefits advocacy, employment training, and other services to houseless individuals across the state of California and addresses the problem of homelessness.
“I have been thinking for a long time about various ideas to help the homeless community and The Homeward Bound Concert seemed like a perfect way for the music industry and artist community to join together and make a difference,” says Shank. “I’ve seen first hand that any contribution can make a positive impact on homeless families life. We as an industry, a community, and a city can come together on January 23rd to generate necessary funding and awareness to help get families off the streets. I’m grateful to everyone who has stepped up and supported this event in the first year and hope to have the opportunity to continue to raise funding for PATH in years to come.”
The concert will feature stripped down mini-sets from each of the artists, unique collaborations, and surprise guests.
Making a rare appearance with his band mate Robby Krieger from The Doors, John Densmore says, “when you get the brass ring, it is natural to give back. I wish the 1% felt the same.”

ABOUT HOMEWARD BOUND
The Homeward Bound Concert was created by concert producer & talent manager Jonathan Shank in an attempt to raise awareness & much needed funding for the homeless community. The homeless epidemic has been sweeping across LA and the rest of the country as more people struggle to make ends meet. The Homeward Bound concert strives to bring the music industry and artist community together to help get families off the street. The concert aims to be the first large scale annual fundraiser for the homeless community. All proceeds will go to PATH.
PATH’s mission is to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities. PATH envisions a world where every person has a home. Our values include creative collaborations, strategic leadership, empowerment for all, and passionate commitment. The group started by distributing food and clothing to people living on the streets. As homelessness continued to grow nationwide, research revealed that Housing First—a best practice model that first connects people to permanent housing and then focuses on stabilization through voluntary supportive services, proved more effective. Now, over thirty years later, we have more than 25 locations throughout California, provide services in more than 140 cities, and more than 1,000 units of permanent supportive housing completed or in the pipeline. Across the state, we help people find permanent housing and provide case management, medical and mental healthcare, benefits advocacy, employment training, and other services to help them maintain their homes stably. Since 2013, we have connected more than 7,500 people to permanent homes.
