Marshall Fire Benefit Concert Ft. Colorado-Based, National Acts Happening This Month
There are few things in life that are better than music - especially when it's music for a good cause.
On Wednesday (Feb. 9), AEG Presents chairman emeritus Chuck Morris joined Governor Jared Polis, Community Foundation of Boulder President Tatiana Hernandez, and Nathaniel Rateliff of Colorado-based band Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats to announce a virtual benefit concert to support disaster survivors of the Marshall Fire.
As per the Feb. 9 press release, the Marshall Fire Benefit Concert will be pre-recorded; the pre-recording is slated to go live online on Monday, Feb. 28th, and will feature more than 15 Colorado-based artists among other popular national musical acts.
The Marshall Fire broke out at the very end of 2021 and destroyed more than 1,000 homes in the midst of its wrath - not to mention numerous businesses in and around the neighborhoods of Superior and Louisville.
The Marshall Fire has since been recorded as the most destructive fire in Colorado's history.
While Governor Polis and his administration have been working closely with local, state, and federal agencies to provide much-needed relief for all those impacted by the Marshall Fire, this benefit concert will hopefully pose as a major. helping hand for those who are still healing and building back from this disruptive, destructive fire.
“Music itself can be healing, and the funds raised by this event will go a long way toward helping Coloradans impacted by the Marshall Fire to rebuild their lives and communities,” Gov. Polis said in the press release.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering together with AEG, Community Foundation of Boulder, and Colorado creatives whose talents serve as a powerful balm during a difficult time. If you’re able to donate to help our friends and neighbors who need our support now more than ever, this is a great opportunity to pay it forward while enjoying your favorite bands.”
Throughout the concert, virtual attendees will get the opportunity to jam out and enjoy some of Colorado's, as well as the country's most talented musical artists.
The best part is, all proceeds collected from ticket sales will go directly to helping Marshall Fire survivors through the Community Foundation of Boulder County’s website.
"The power of Colorado’s music community to band together and lend their talents for free makes me proud to be in the music business,” said Chairman Emeritus of AEG Chuck Morris.
"The Marshall fire was a devastating event,” Nathaniel Rateliff of Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats added in the press release. “Our neighbors to the north had their world turned upside down within a few hours. I am honored to do anything I can to help those affected by the fire get back on their feet.”
Tickets for the virtual Marshall Fire Benefit Concert are on sale now at marshallfirebenefit.veeps.com with a donation minimum of $10.
