THE STROKES City of Angels Benefit Concert on sale today

Hello:

We’re stoked to be playing The Wiltern in LA on July 25th for the inaugural City of Angels Benefit Concert. We’ve made the tickets more expensive than usual and wanted to explain why to those of you who might not be able to afford them.

In doing a show for the charities – Waste Not Want Not NowThe Center in Hollywood, and Downtown Women’s Center – our responsibility is to keep costs down and to ensure as much of the money goes to those in need. 100% of net proceeds of this show will be going to the charities.

Similarly, we have to acknowledge many tickets will appear on secondary sites within minutes of going on sale which means that anyone can flip a ticket and make a $50, $75, $100++ profit. None of that additional money would go to any of the charities but to scalpers, and it will happen at a regularly priced show.
For those of you who might not be able to afford tickets and are disappointed we’re sorry but in this instance we made a decision to help the charities and prevent as much money being siphoned away from the people in need as we could.

Thanks for understanding. Hope to see you there!

Tickets go on sale today at noon PDT / 3pm EST HERE.
