Dave Matthews, Trey Anastasio, Aaron Neville and Hurray For The Riff Raff will perform at “A Concert for Island Relief,” a benefit scheduled for January 6 at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. Proceeds from the event will benefit hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico as well as the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, which were hit hard by 2017 storms.
Tickets for the event are on sale starting Tuesday morning through Dave Matthews’ Warehouse fan club website, as well as Trey Anastasio’s TicketsToday.com page. The presale phase ends on Wednesday, at which point those who have put in a request for tickets will either be charged for their order, or have to move on to a second shot with the regular sale, which will begin on Friday at noon on Ticketmaster.com, according to the benefit website.
Donations are also welcome at http://www.concertforislandrelief.com.
Per the concert website, “All proceeds from the event and from online donations will benefit hurricane relief efforts in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Funds will support both immediate and long-term needs in the devastating aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.”
According to Liveforlivemusic.com. The Madison Square Garden Company has donated the use of Radio City, and will also cover all venue-related expenses. Ticketmaster is also donating their net proceeds from service fees, which means that the majority of money spent by attendees will actually make it to the fund being donated to relief.
