Actor Michael J Fox joined Dave Matthews on stage for a performance of All Along The Watchtower.

The weekend show at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City was part of the Michael J Fox Foundation’s A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s gala.

Fox, 55, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 and has been an active advocate for research towards finding a cure for many years.

Fox famously played Chuck Berry’s Johnny B Goode in his role as Marty McFly in Back To The Future.

The Michael J Fox Foundation says it is “dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.”

The Dave Matthews Band have a number of tour dates coming up, including a performance at the Stand With Standing Rock event in Washington DC on November 27. Neil Young last weekend showed his support for the protests against the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.
