Bob Dylan will be honored as the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year on Friday, Feb. 6, 2015. Proceeds from the 25th annual benefit gala dinner and concert — to be held in Los Angeles during GRAMMY Week two nights prior to the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards — will provide essential support for MusiCares. The event will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center in the West Hall. Check-in will open at 5 p.m. as well as a cocktail reception and silent auction. Dinner will follow at 8 p.m. and the concert will begin at 9 p.m.

Performers at the tribute concert include GRAMMY winners Beck; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Norah Jones; Tom Jones; Los Lobos; John Mellencamp; Alanis Morissette; Willie Nelson; Aaron Neville; Bonnie Raitt; Bruce Springsteen; Susan Tedeschi; Derek Trucks; Eddie Vedder; Jack White; and Neil Young; as well as singer/songwriter Jackson Browne and singer/songwriter John Doe. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter will present the award to Bob Dylan. Three-time GRAMMY-winning producer and recent Emmy winner Don Was will be the evening's musical director. Additional performers will be announced shortly.

The 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year gala will begin with a reception and silent auction offering an exclusive and unparalleled selection of luxury items, VIP experiences and one-of-a-kind celebrity memorabilia for bidding guests. The reception and silent auction will be followed by a dinner, the award presentation and a tribute concert by renowned musicians. The MusiCares Person of the Year tribute ceremony is one of the most prestigious events held during GRAMMY Week.
