Star-Studded Tsunami Aid Concert Televised

Published: 2005-01-07
A two-hour concert to benefit the tsunami relief effort will be held in Vancouver's GM Place on January 29th and televised live and commercial-free on CTV at 10pm EST. The event is being hosted by comedian Rick Mercer with performances by a bevy of Canadian stars such as Avril Lavigne, Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan. With ticket prices ranging from $99.50-$42.50 to attend, there is sure to be a phenomenal amount raised for this worthy cause.

Taking it one step further, on January 31 in Calgary, the performers will be joined by Bruce Cockburn and Brent Butt of Corner Gas for another show. Lavigne will be absent for that event. All of the funds raised during the events will be donated to Oxfam, Care Canada, Doctors Without Borders and War Child.

Tickets will be available at the Orca Bay box office at General Motors Place and all TicketMaster outlets. To charge by phone call (604)280-4444 or buy on-line at
