Not a bad deal if you ask us.
Its been over five months since Japan was demolished by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Thankfully, people haven't forgotten about the devastation in the country and are still putting together relief efforts to raise money for those in need. Linkin Park is prepared to do their part to get help to Japan and they've launched their own unique campaign to do it.
The band has started a fundraiser on the site Give2gether.com. They've put out the message to fans that the first 500 people to raise $500 or more will get a pair of tickets to a secret Los Angeles show that's scheduled to take place on August 31!
Though the band isn't revealing any details about the show, they promise that the venue will be "small & intimate" and that the Japanese pop group B'z will be opening for them. They also announced that the more money a fan raises, the better their experience will be. The top 50 fundraisers will earn a meet-and-greet session with the bandmembers and a group photo. The top 10 will get signed instruments from the band's recent European tour, plus the meet-and-greet. And the top fundraiser will watch the secret show from the stage, in addition to all the other goodies.
Now that's pretty amazing. For just a little of their time and talent, the Linkin Park boys and their fans are going to do so much good. Hell, they've already managed to make a difference! At this point, $47,635 has been raised, with the most generous U.S. fan donating $7,000 to the cause!
Simply outstanding! Keep up the inspiring work!
