An all-star lineup of performers has been announced to perform at the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year ceremony.
Fleetwood Mac is being honored with this year’s award, making them the first band to receive MusiCares’ prestigious Person of the Year award. The ceremony will features performances from a flurry of artists from different parts of the music world. Lorde, Harry Styles, John Legend, Haim, OneRepublic, and Keith Urban will all perform at the ceremony, before Fleetwood Mac closes it out themselves.
In a statement released today (Nov. 10), MusiCares said Fleetwood Mac will “be celebrated for their extraordinary creative accomplishments and significant charitable work.”
Proceeds from the annual Person of the Year tribute — now in its 28th year — provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures all 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, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Carole King, Lionel Richie, Barbra Streisand, and Stevie Wonder.
The 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute will take place on Friday, January 26th at Radio City Music Hall.
