The Dave Matthews Band has announced that they will donate all proceeds from their next New Jersey concert to the Hurricane Sandy relief fund.
The Associated Press reports that the band plans on donating $1 million to help the victims affected by the Super Storm which hit the east coast on October 29.
The band is set to perform both November 30 and December 1 at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ, to which the band will donate all ticket and merchandise funds to the Bama Works Sandy Relief Fund.
The band also released the news on their website as well as on Twitter, noting that tickets purchased before the storm will also be combined in their donation. The Grammy-award winning band offers more information into Bama, saying, “The Bama Works Sandy Relief Fund has been established at the Community Foundation of New Jersey to support immediate and long-term regional recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.”
Tickets are still currently on sale for the New Jersey show; their tour will conclude in Philadelphia on December 22.
