On Thursday, September 6, 2007 Dave Matthews Band along with John Mayer, Phil Vassar and Nas will join together in “A Concert For Virginia Tech,” at the university’s Lane Stadium. DMB and the other artists will be donating their performances at this event – a celebration of life and a tribute to the resiliency and strength of the Virginia Tech community.
Coming at the beginning of the 2007-2008 academic year, the concert was conceived as a way to help students, faculty and other members of the community move forward in the aftermath of the April events at Virginia Tech.
Free tickets to the concert will be made available to all current Virginia Tech students, faculty and staff. A limited number of reserved and general admission tickets will be made available to Warehouse members through Series 12-2007. . .
The Warehouse ticketing request period is now open and will close on August 20, 2007 at 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time. The ticketing request period is not first come-first serve, the order in which you place your ticket request does not matter.
Confirmations as well as seating information will be issued by the end of the day on August 27, 2007 and tickets will ship via Fed Ex 2-business day signature required service on August 28, 2007. The ticket price for “A Concert for Virginia Tech” is $65.00 per ticket plus convenience, handling and shipping. No funds from the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund will be used to cover expenses for this concert. Corporate sponsorships, the sale of commemorative concert items and Warehouse ticket sales will help to cover the expenses associated with the logistics of the concert.
