Founding Animals frontman Eric Burdon, Patti Smith and The Grateful Dead‘s Bob Weir will perform at 2018 Pathway to Paris concert, taking place September 14 at The Masonic in San Francisco.
As with previous Pathway to Paris shows, the upcoming concert aims to raise awareness about climate change, and will specifically focus on “the potential for cities to push for, achieve, and go beyond the climate targets highlighted in The Paris Agreement.” The Paris Agreement is an international treaty that entered into force in 2016, and signed by more than 170 parties to date, that seeks to bring all countries together to work to “combat climate change and adapt to its effects.”

The inaugural Pathway to Paris concert was held in Paris in 2015. Last year’s edition, held at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, also featured Flea and Patti, as well R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe.
