The tribute was promised to fans during the Holdsworth family's memorial GoFundMe campaign, and it will take place at the Phoenix Club Theater, Anaheim, California, on April 15, 2018, at 2 pm. Doors open at 1 pm, and there is no reserved seating.
"All friends and fans are warmly invited," states Bartlett and the Holdsworth family.
