Dave Matthews Band Does Stand Up for a Cure Charity Show

Published: 2008-05-13
This September, another benefit concert in the series of shows will be raising money for charity for "Stand Up for a Cure" taking place in New York City with the Dave Matthews Band. Andrea Bocelli, Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys and Jerry Seinfeld are all set to make performances or appearances later this year as part of the series as well.

The Dave Matthews Band portion of the series will take place at Madison Square Garden on the 10th of September and all proceeds will go to New York City's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre to raise awareness and funds for lung cancer research. Tickets go on sale this Friday. The other artists will perform at different venues across the city for the same cause; all organized by the nonprofit which the concert series is named after, Stand Up for a Cure. The organization is made up of medical professionals and family members of lung cancer patients, which would like to set up about a half a dozen of these kinds of events in 2008.
