Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler and his solo backing band Loving Mary will give a special performance to close out a March 6 benefit concert that will raise money for the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation. The event will be held at the Avalon Hollywood nightclub in L.A.

Los Angeles-based hard rockers Heaven & Earth will open the show. The foundation helps families of L.A. Police Department employees who have been injured or have died in the line of duty. The aid that the organization provides includes taking care of widows or orphans, helping the children of officers who have been killed pay for college, and assisting families of officers with medical fees.

“I am very proud to be able to help out the men and women of the LAPD that do this every day for so little and are generally very unappreciated,” says Heaven & Earth guitarist Stuart Smith. “Steven Tyler also wanted to do more to help.”

Tickets are priced from $75 to $3,500 and are available now at Eventbrite.com.

The Loving Mary band features a number of respected Nashville musicians who contributed to Tyler’s country-flavored debut solo album, 2016’s We’re All Somebody from Somewhere. The group also accompanied Steven on his tour in support of the record, and has played with him at several benefit events as well.
