Vegas Strong Benefit Concert Raises Over $700K For Victims

George Strait and Jason Aldean also contributed recorded tributes for the event.

The Vegas Strong Benefit Concert was held earlier this month to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in October. It was announced today (Dec. 27) that the event raised over $700,000.

Imagine Dragons, the Killers, Boyz II Men, Jay Leno, the Blue Man Group, and more came out to perform at the event. According to Billboard, Celine Dion, George Strait, Elton John, and Jason Aldean (who was performing when the shooting occurred) also contributed recorded tributes.

Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak, who co-created the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund with Sheriff Joseph Lombardo to benefit the shooting victims, said:

“We are grateful for the outpouring of love from these icons of Las Vegas entertainment, who once again proved that our community stands as one to support the victims of this senseless tragedy.”
