Playing for Change: The U.S. Tour

Awesome. If you haven’t heard of “Playing for Change” or its international renditions of “Stand By Me,” “One Love,” or “Don’t Worry,” you no longer have to worry: the documentary’s favorite musicians are coming to a U.S. city near you during the month of March only!

General Admission to all shows are just $20, or opt for the VIP (including a meet-and-greet with select musicians) ticket for $100.

Here’s a little clip of the documentary trailer, which gives just a brief glimpse of how we can unite the world through music.

Proceeds go towards the Playing for Change Foundation, which aims to connect the world through music. The foundation provides musicians around the world facilities to play music and enhance their skills, therefore not only making their lives better but also demonstrating how music brings people together regardless of cultural and socio-economic differences.
