As planned, THE BLACK CROWES will perform three sold-out concerts at the Beacon Theatre in New York City this week (Thursday, September 20 through Saturday, September 21). All profits from these shows as well as 100% of all merchandising revenue will be donated to two organizations that will benefit victims of the recent terrorist attacks. Those charities–the NYS WTC Relief Fund and the NYC Public/Private Initiative-are both state run, with 100% of the monies collected going to survivors and families of victims (see below). The band has requested that representatives from these charities be on hand at the shows.
