G-Eazy, Lizzo & more to perform at ‘Stay Amped’ gun safety benefit concert
It’s been named “Stay Amped” and it’s a special concert to benefit and support gun safety which will be held in Washington D.C. on Friday (Mar. 23).
“Stay Amped” will benefit the Everytown For Gun Safety Action Fund and the Giffords organization, a gun violence prevention organization started by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and Captain Mark Kelly.
As regards the list of performers, at the moment it includes G-Eazy, Lizzo, Fall Out Boy, Bebe Rexha, Alex G and Cam.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of this and getting energized by these kids and other survivors who have been incredibly inspiring to me,” said G-Eazy.
“I’ve been an avid follower and supporter of Everytown since the Orlando nightclub tragedy,” said Lizzo, adding “The fight for human rights is a no brainer, and when our youth are threatened we must do everything in our power to protect them. Thank you, Everytown and Giffords for having us and working so hard for our rights.”
“Music brings people together and we’re grateful that The Anthem is hosting this event,” said John Feinblatt, the president of Everytown for Gun Safety.
“Americans should be free from gun violence at school, concerts and in our daily lives. The night before Americans rally across the country as part of the student-led March for Our Lives, we’ll join together to honor the lives of all gun violence survivors and pledge to fight in their honor,” he concluded.
The show will be held at The Anthem. Tickets can be bought through ticketfly.com, The Anthem, 9:30 Club, Merriweather Post Pavilion and Lincoln Theatre during regular box office hours.
