On The Rise
Madonna, Elton John, Toby Keith, Celine Dion, Staind, INXS, Gretchen Wilson, Toby Keith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bonnie Raitt, Ozomatli, Def Leppard, and Tim McGraw are just a few of the big names who have donated premium concert tickets for the Music Cares charity campaign.
The tickets will be auctioned via Ticketmaster, with net proceeds going to Music Cares. The program seeks to replace musical instruments lost by musicians, churches, schools and community groups in the Gulf Coast region, as well as helping musicians regain their livelihoods.
Promotion giants Live Nation, House of Blues, AEG Live and Nederlander Concerts are participating in the auctions, which will include four tickets and one Epiphone guitar provided by Gibson. Most guitars will be autographed by one or more of the performers.
Tickets are available for events across the country from May through October, with details at ticketmaster.com/musicrisingauctions.
