A star-studded Eddie Money tribute concert, held last Thursday, February 20, at The Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California, will be aired on AXS TV on March 22.

Money's family posted a note on the late singer's Facebook page thanking all the musicians, friends and associates who participated in the tribute concert honoring Eddie.

The concert featured performances by Sammy Hagar, REO Speedwagon's Kevin Cronin and Dave Amato, George Thorogood, Starship singer Mickey Thomas, Greg Kihn, Tommy Tutone, John Waite and Metallica frontman James Hetfield.

Guitarist Waddy Wachtel also performed, as did three of Money's children -- daughter Jesse and sons Dez and Julian. Comedian Louie Anderson hosted the show.

"We have been overwhelmed by the generosity and genuine love expressed by his music industry peers, as well as his fans (he always preferred the word, 'friends')," the note reads. "Words cannot express how much it means to our family to know that so many others also love and miss him, so a simple 'THANK YOU' will have to do."

Money died in September 2019 at age 70, a few weeks after revealing he'd been diagnosed with stage-four esophageal cancer.
