Twisted Sister's Dee Snider and country music mogul John Rich will lead a long lineup of rock and country stars in a benefit concert Monday for victims of the Station Nightclub fire in Rhode Island. One hundred people were killed and 200 injured when pyrotechnics from a Great White show at the nightclub sparked a huge blaze. The February 25 concert marks the fifth anniversary of the tragedy and will benefit the survivors and the 65 children who lost one or both parents in the fire.
Snider will host the rock segments of the show, with performances by Twisted Sister, Tesla, Winger, Aaron Lewis of Staind, Gary Pihl of Boston and many more. Rich will host the country performances, with appearances by Kellie Pickler, Dierks Bentley, Gretchen Wilson and former Alabama frontman Randy Owen. It's the biggest lineup of stars ever at Providence's Dunkin' Donuts Center.
"This event is about music fans desperately in need, so it's important that 'Phoenix Rising Musicians United to Benefit the Station Nightclub Fire Victims' be supported by musicians of all genres," explains Snider of the eclectic lineup. "We are so happy to welcome John Rich and his rowdy friends aboard for this very important mission."
