The stars are aligning to help out the victims of last month’s shooting in Tuscon. Some musical heavy hitters are among the headliners. 

Jackson Browne and Alice Cooper are just a couple of the big names on the bill for the concert that will benefit The Fund for Civility, Respect, and Understanding in Tuscon, Arizona. The fund was created by the family of Ron Barber who was wounded in the January 8th shooting.

Besides Browne and Cooper, David Crosby and Graham Nash are also set to perform.  More acts are being added constantly and there are a number of speakers that are being lined up, including Barber.

The suspected gunman, Jared Loughner was charged with one count of attempted assassination, two counts of killing a federal employee and two counts of attempting to kill a federal employee. Additional murder charges are expected to be presented March 9.

The benefit is scheduled for March 10 at the Tuscon Convention Center.

Jackson Browne, meanwhile, is scheduled to perform May 4 at the State Theater in Minneapolis. Tickets for that show go on sale tomorrow morning at 11am through the Hennepin Theater Trust.
