Staind’s 9/11 Benefit Show to Stream Live Tonight on Noisecreep
To mark the release of their new self-titled album, Staind will be performing a special show in New York City to benefit the families of 9/11. The show will be held tonight at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square.
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, tickets to the show are priced at $9.11, with all revenue from the show to benefit the families of 9/11 victims. Moreover, Atlantic Records will match Staind’s donation from ticket sales for a separate additional donation to the charity.
“As the release of our new album coincides with the 10th anniversary of 9/11, we wanted to use the attention to make the point that there is still much work for all of us to do, ” said Aaron Lewis, lead singer of Staind. “We are deliberately making the ticket price $9.11 to underscore the point that if enough of us do just a little bit, together we can make a big difference in the lives of the families who’s members made the supreme sacrifice for our country.”
Those not able to attend the event in person will be able to stream the concert live in the player below tonight courtesy of Ustream.
