Sandy Hook Benefit Concert Canceled Due To Lack Of Ticket Sales


chicago musicians careA Sandy Hook benefit concert that was supposed to happen in Chicago has been canceled because of lack of tickets being sold. Proceeds were supposed to go to the Sandy Hook Workers Assistance Fund, which helps teachers, first responders and other workers suffering mental health issues from the shooting. They’ll just have to deal with that on their own.

    This was in Chicago where there are murders every day, hell every hour.  I guess they figured “Where was their concert?”

    Stop with all of the benefit concerts . If someone gets a cold there is a benefit concert to buy them tissues . People just trying to make themselves feel better by sending stuffed animals , useless trinkets , or the bimonthly benefit concert .

    No one wants to attend because the performers are just some random local acts and a children’s choir.  No one is watching a shitty children’s choir unless a family member is actually in the choir.   Get some better acts and people will show up.  Simple as that

    Benefits for the first responders? really?  Benefits should be for victims/direct family to help with bills… all others should stop making money off tragedies..

    kylechristo4 I completely agree.  Plus, I know this sounds terrible to day, but this affected a very small community and relatively few people vs. hurricane Sandy (although I still don’t think a giant concert was needed for the latter either).  And, shouldn’t it be in CT, and not Chicago?

    Maybe the response would have better if they were in, say, Connecticut instead of Chicago?

    Maybe they would sell more tickets if they were holding a benefit for Sandy Kane instead of Sandy Hook.

    Maybe not
