Today, global music sensation Playing For Change released its third album, PFC3 Songs Around The World, featuring 185 musicians from 31 countries united together through music. The album features artists Keb’ Mo’, Keith Richards, Los Lobos, Taj Mahal, Toots Hibbert, Sara Bareilles, Aztec Indians and the one and only PFC Band! Lucky for PFC fans, Playing For Change is headlining the Levitt National Tour this summer, which will bring this phenomenal band to six Levitt locations across America for free.
Taking place over a three-week period, the tour stops at six Levitt locations—including Los Angeles and Pasadena, Calif.; Memphis; Arlington, Texas; Bethlehem, Pa; and the future site of Levitt Pavilion Denver (where audiences will get a taste of what’s to come when the venue opens in 2016)! Playing For Change performed at Levitt Steelstacks in Bethlehem last Thursday and will be performing this weekend at Levitt Shell Memphis on Friday, June 20th, and Levitt Arlington on Saturday, June 21st.
