It was only just one more month until you were going to rock out to Sheryl Crow's brand of inoffensive sensible guitar pop, but now you have to wait just a little bit longer. I know all you wanna do is have some fun, but that fun will have to wait until Sept. 20 for the inaugural This Land is Your Land benefit show. From PR:

Sheryl Crow’s Bay Area appearance at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord on August 27th has been moved. She has been invited to perform at the first annual This Land Is Your Land benefit concert at the Sleep Train Pavilion on September 20th.

This Land Is Your Land is a multimedia benefit event honoring Woody Guthrie and John Steinbeck, two great artistic legacies of freedom of speech, social commentary and the defense of the rights of all citizens.

Produced by Live Nation, in association with The Woody Guthrie Foundation and Archives, as well as the John Steinbeck Foundation, this special event will feature numerous musical performances, spoken word, poetry, story telling and displays of historical family artifacts.

SHERYL CROW INVITED TO PERFORM AT INAUGURAL

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND BENEFIT CONCERT

Original performance date of August 27th moved to September 20th

Sheryl Crow’s Bay Area appearance at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord on August 27th has been moved. She has been invited to perform at the first annual This Land Is Your Land benefit concert at the Sleep Train Pavilion on September 20th.

This Land Is Your Land is a multimedia benefit event honoring Woody Guthrie and John Steinbeck, two great artistic legacies of freedom of speech, social commentary and the defense of the rights of all citizens.

Produced by Live Nation, in association with The Woody Guthrie Foundation and Archives, as well as the John Steinbeck Foundation, this special event will feature numerous musical performances, spoken word, poetry, story telling and displays of historical family artifacts.

With a mix of provocative artists and an open dialogue to discuss issues of the day, This Land Is Your Land is not only a look back at the history of Woody Guthrie and John Steinbeck, but also a forum to continue the discourse begun by these two great American icons.

Sheryl Crow and her long time concern for the environment, as well as her emotional and provocative work on her latest CD, Detours, exemplifies the type of artist that will participate in this annual event. Her performance will be the same full-set presentation that was planned for her originally scheduled show on August 27th. James Blunt and Toots and the Maytals, previously scheduled to perform with her, will not be performing on the newly announced date. (James Blunt will be performing at The Fillmore in San Francisco on August 27, on sale Sunday July 20 at 10am.)

The complete artist lineup, on sale and ticketing information for This Land Is Your Land will be announced shortly.

All tickets to Sheryl Crow’s August 27th show will be honored at This Land Is Your Land on September 20th at the Sleep Train Pavilion. Refunds will be available at the original place of purchase before August 1st.

Tickets for new show are available at LiveNation.com. Tickets are subject to service charge.
