Dan + Shay are set to kick off their headline Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour with back-to-back sold out shows in their hometown of Nashville beginning tomorrow night, March 6, 2020.
In light of the devastating tornadoes that ripped through Nashville on Tuesday morning, Dan + Shay have announced a $100,000 donation to relief efforts:
“We are heartbroken by the devastation the tornadoes left upon Tennessee earlier this week. Our love goes out to everyone affected by this tragedy. We are so proud to call Nashville our home, and have seen first hand that this community is strong, resilient, and compassionate. What this town does best in times of need, is come together, so it is only fitting that our tour starts tomorrow in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena. Friday and Saturday, through the power of music, we will all unite to celebrate the spirit of our incredible city. On behalf of Dan + Shay, we will be making a $100,000 donation to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. We are looking forward to two unforgettable shows, in the town we hold dearest to our hearts.”
AEG Presents, Sandbox Entertainment, CAA and Bridgestone Arena are each also donating a monetary amount per ticket sold for both Nashville shows to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
