Those boys in Staind have hearts made of solid gold!
Staind will celebrate the release of Staind and commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by performing at a special show in New York City to benefit the families of 9/11. The show will be held at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square on Sept. 15.
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, tickets to the show will be priced at $9.11, with all revenue from the show to benefit the families of 9/11 victims. Bravo, Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok and company!
"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 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."
Moreover, the band's label, Atlantic Records, will match Staind's donation from ticket sales for a separate additional donation to the charity.
Those not able to attend the event in person will be able to stream the concert live by going here courtesy of Ustream. So you can be there in spirit if not in the flesh.
