Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Steven Tyler and the Loving Mary Band have been booked to sing at the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation's benefit concert.
The event -- which also will feature a performance by the LA rock band Heaven & Earth -- is to take place March 6 at Avalon Hollywood.
"While participating in the memorial foundation's charity golf tournament I had the opportunity to get to know families that lost a loved one," Stuart Smith of Heaven & Earth said in a statement. "They lost a spouse or a parent over something so stupid as a traffic stop. My heart went out to them. 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. Steven Tyler also wanted to do more to help."
