In response to the recent North Bay firestorm, a coalition of Bay Area business and community leaders are launching “Band Together Bay Area” to support the local relief and long-term recovery in the region.

To raise funds for the efforts, the coalition has also announced a benefit concert on Thursday, Nov. 9 at AT&T Park featuring Metallica, Dave Matthews, G-Eazy and others artists. The concert will be underwritten by sponsors, with 100% of ticket sales going to the Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund. The best seats in the house will be donated to first responders, volunteers and families impacted by the firestorm.

Tickets for the concert will go on sale Friday, Oct. 27 at 10:00 a.m. at bandtogetherbayarea.org and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets range from $49.50 to $199.50 plus applicable charges. Ticketmaster will donate all processing fees to the relief effort.
