Light of Day England this year takes place at the Musician in Leicester and features a host of fantastic musicians including Jesse Malin, Guy Davis, Badly Drawn Boy, Joe D’Urso and local hero Jersey Budd. In the support slot are Maeve O’Boyle and Rob Dye.

The Light of Day Foundation was formed in 1999 by a group of musicians from the renowned New Jersey shore, to raise money for research into the cause of Parkinson’s and related diseases. Legendary New Jersey music manager, Bob Benjamin, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at the age of just 38 years. The organisation was named ‘Light of Day’ after the Bruce Springsteen song – in the hope that a cure would be ‘just around the corner’.

What started as a single concert at the world-famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park has now become a global tour, this year taking in 13 countries, and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for the cause. Bruce Springsteen himself has given his time and support to Light of Day many, many times over the years since the concerts started. With 2013 seeing both Linda Ronstadt and Billy Connolly, to name just two, diagnosed with Parkinson’s the quest for a cure goes on. Come on out for a night of great music and help to support an amazing charity.
