WASHINGTON — The deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, shocked the country. In response, the Dave Matthews Band, which calls Charlottesville its hometown, will host a free all-star concert promoting unity for all members of the local and University of Virginia communities.
Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Chris Stapleton, The Roots and Cage the Elephant are just a few of the guests set to perform on Sept. 24 at U.Va.’s Scott Stadium.
Tickets will be allocated initially to residents of Charlottesville, the adjacent counties and U.Va. students, faculty and staff with a valid university ID.
An online ticket request period is underway at the Concert for Charlottesville’s website that will end on Monday, Sept. 11, at 12 p.m.
There will also be a limited number of tickets available at a walk-up box office, with no service charge, at John Paul Jones Arena on Friday, Sept. 15, at 10 a.m.
While tickets are free, anyone who wants to go to the concert is encouraged to make a donation to the Concert for Charlottesville Fund at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.
The money will go to victims of the events in Charlottesville, their families, first responders and organizations devoted to the promotion of healing, unity and justice locally and nationwide.
