Howard Marks and Friends: A benefit concert for Mr Nice

Last autumn, Howard Marks – A.K.A. ‘Mister Nice’, the legendary counter-culture icon and best-selling author, was diagnosed with inoperable bowel cancer, which has since spread to his lungs and liver. Despite being hit with this terrible diagnosis, Howard continues to relentlessly campaign for the legalisation of cannabis. In these challenging times, Howard remains as strong an advocate for free speech as ever – and he continues to be an inspiration for many people all over the world today.

Since Howard went public about his medical condition, a legion of loved ones and devoted fans have rallied together to show their support and appreciation of the living legend; As part of these efforts, a fantastic line-up of artists have grouped together to hold a benefit concert in order to raise funds which will go towards Howard’s treatment, as well as the establishment of a charitable trust.
