CHICAGO — Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jackson Browne will play a charity concert at the Copernicus Center, 5216 W. Lawrence Ave., in Jefferson Park on Sunday to benefit the anti-war group Veterans for Peace.

Veterans for Peace is made up of military veterans who are "dedicated to building a culture of peace, exposing the true costs of war and healing the wounds of war," according to its website. The group is holding its annual convention Downtown this week, and Sunday is its last day.

Browne, best known for 1970s hits like "Running on Empty" and "Doctor My Eyes," said that he wants "to add [his] voice to those of Veterans for Peace in calling for the dismantling of our war economy and working to end all wars,” according to the event description.

The singer-songwriter will be accompanied by his longtime bandmate and multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz.

Tickets are available online starting at $25 each.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
