(WINDSOR, ON) – Live Production Group, in association with MR Productions, have announced a Hurricane Harvey Relief Concert featuring the Fanatically Hip on Saturday September 30, at the Olde Walkerville Theatre. Doors open at 7:30pm and the concert begins at 8:15pm.
Hurricane Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, ending a record 12-year period of relative calm. In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches of rain as the system meandered over eastern Texas and adjacent waters, causing catastrophic flooding.
With peak accumulations of 51.88in, Harvey is the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the contiguous United States. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.
Now, with a second hurricane on the horizon Houston and the surrounding area needs our assistance. Together we stand with Texas.
The relief concert will feature the Fanatically Hip, a Tragically Hip tribute band. The Fanatically Hip will capture the audience with their exact sound and recreation of the iconic Canadian band. The music of the Tragically Hip created, and the stories they tell, are shared among a wide variety of cultures and age groups, which truly makes them the greatest Canadian Band.
Proceeds of ticket sales and concert sponsorships will benefit the Hurricane Harvey Relief fund.
Tickets may be purchased online or by contacting The Olde Walkerville Theatre.
