On February 28, live entertainment company AEG Presents, in partnership with Colorado Governor Jared Polis and Community Foundation of Boulder County, hosted a virtual benefit concert to support survivors of the Marshall Fire, which broke out on Dec. 30 and is recorded as the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history.
The concert raised more than $700,000 and featured more than 15 Colorado-based artists as well as popular national music acts including Steve Miller, Lyle Lovette, Dave Matthews and Ryan Tedder, the lead singer of OneRepublic.
“This virtual benefit concert captures the true spirit of Colorado - when our friends and neighbors face the difficult challenge of rebuilding after the Marshall Fire, we step up to provide real relief to those in need, and we celebrate the healing power of music performed by incredible Colorado artists. This is what Colorado is all about, and we hope you will join us for this incredible event,” said Governor Polis.
“Together with our amazing partners including Governor Polis, the Community Foundation of Boulder County, and the staff at AEG Denver, we will support countless Coloradans with the proceeds from this benefit concert. I am proud to be a part of the music community as we use the power of music to bring relief - both financial and emotional - to our community at this time,” said Chairman Emeritus of AEG Presents, Chuck Morris.
