The classic rock world is once again organizing benefit concerts to help victims of Sept. 11.

Styx singer Tommy Shaw came up with the idea for a benefit concert last year, and he said they had such a good time they wanted to do it again.

There will be two concerts: one in East Rutherford, N.J., on Oct. 19, and another in Cleveland on Oct. 20.

Other artists involved include Bad Company, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Sam Moore of Sam and Dave, Survivor, John Waite and Edgar Winter.

Proceeds from the first show will go to the Port Authority Police World Trade Disaster Survivors Fund. Proceeds from the second show will benefit that fund and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Educational Fund.
