STAIND SINGER, OTHERS TO PERFORM AT NIGHTCLUB FIRE BENEFIT

Staind singer Aaron Lewis is among the artists who will perform at a benefit concert for victims of the Station nightclub fire, which took the lives of 100 people on February 20th, 2003 in Providence, Rhode Island. According to Blabbermouth.net, the show will take place on February 25th at the Dunkin Donut Center in Providence, with Twisted Sister, Tesla, Stryper and Boston guitarist Tom Scholz also scheduled to appear. All proceeds from ticket sales and charity auctions will go to the Station Family Fund, a non-profit charitable organization founded by survivors of the fire to provide relief for its victims, including continuing medical costs.

Tickets for the event go on sale Friday (January 4th) via Ticketmaster.

A 2005 concert featuring Shinedown and others raised more than $100,000 for victims of the blaze, but more funding is needed. According to a press release, only 15 survivors of the fire qualified for Social Security benefits, and many are still unable to meet their monthly needs.

In addition to the 100 people killed, another 200 were injured in the fire, which was caused by faulty pyrotechnics and poor club insulation during a concert by Great White. Some 65 children lost one or both parents in the disaster.
