Gov. John Hickenlooper states “Coloradans unite during crisis – so does the music community. We are thrilled so many musicians are coming together for this flood relief benefit concert. This is a great way to highlight recovery efforts and raise money at the same time. We are grateful AEG Live, Live Nation and other community partners are stepping up to help Colorado communities impacted by the historic flooding.”
“The fans, musicians and members of Colorado’s music community are always willing to help those in need. My staff and I are humbled to be a part of this event helping those affected by the floods” says Chuck Morris, President and CEO of AEG Live Rocky Mountains.
All proceeds from the concert will go directly to the LiveUnitedColorado.org
The United Ways of Colorado Flood Recovery Fund will distribute funds to the United Ways in communities across Colorado affected by the recent flooding. Each community will build collaborations to identify their needs and funds will be used to support their long term recovery.
