Kiss and Mötley Crüe Donate $100,000 to Victims of Aurora Shooting


By Joe Kovack

The devastating event that transpired in Aurora, CO on July 20, 2012 will forever be remembered by Coloradoans and the world alike for ages to come. It shattered the sense of security in a setting that would never be considered dangerous, at least off the movie screen. But in great tragedy can emerge true compassion and can bring together a community. It can even bring out great generosity from unlikely sources, as long-time rockers Kiss and Mötley Crüe showed when they donated $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund.

The surprise announcement happened when THE TOUR landed at the Comfort Dental Amphitheater August 8th in Englewood, CO. “Following the heartbreaking news of the senseless shootings in Colorado we wanted to do something to help the families and victims. We bonded together with our tour partners and friends Kiss to donate money, but we also hope it inspires others to do the same, no matter how big or small,” said Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe in a recent press release.

In partnership with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, the Aurora Victim Relief has been established through the Community First Foundation. For more details on donations please go to
