Fountains Of Wayne To Reunite For First Performance Since 2013

To help raise money for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund, Fountains Of Wayne will be joining forces with Sharon Van Etten for a livestream concert.

Fountains Of Wayne will be taking part in this week’s Jersey 4 Jersey livestream benefit show, reuniting for their first performance in seven years.

The band will be joined by Sharon Van Etten on bass and backing vocals, following the recent passing of co-founder, bassist and songwriter Adam Schlesinger due to coronavirus complications.

Also taking part in the Jersey 4 Jersey livestream – which will raise money for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund – are Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Tony Bennett, Halsey, Charlie Puth and more, all performing from their homes for the fundraiser.

“New Jersey is on the front lines of this pandemic, making it more important than ever for us to do what Jersey does best – take care of one another,” says New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy. “That’s why we’re asking everyone in our state to join the NJPRF and some of New Jersey’s finest for some much-needed musical entertainment, levity and Jersey Pride during these unprecedented times.”

Fountains Of Wayne frontman Chris Collingwood adds: “Brian, Jody and I are honoured to be part of the Jersey 4 Jersey benefit, and grateful that Sharon was able to perform with us. Adam would have been proud that Fountains were helping to raise money for fellow New Jerseyans.”

Jersey 4 Jersey takes begins at midnight BST on April 23 via Apple Music and AppleTV. See more on the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund here.
