THANK YOU, BANDS & ARTISTS — I’d just like to take a minute here to thank the bands and artists that agreed to do this benefit concert. I don’t think they’ve received many thanks as of yet, so I’d just like them to know that they are truly appreciated, and that this expected $2.4 million+ will really help with the Fort McMurray United Way. Thank you for being awesome.

To those of you attending, enjoy the show tonight!
