Beasley to Host Concert for Vegas Shooting Victims, First Responders

Thursday event intended to help heal with music, raise money for fund

Beasley Broadcast Group and Boyd Gaming are planning a “night of healing through music” in Las Vegas this week for those affected by the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

The “Vegas Strong: A Night of Healing” concert will be held Thursday Oct. 19 at Orleans Arena. The show will feature country singers Big & Rich and Cam, plus a performance from an additional, unannounced country act; it will begin at 8 p.m. The companies said all complimentary tickets have been reserved.

“When we announced free tickets were available for download, all the 4,500 tickets were reserved in less than two hours,” said Beasley Media Group Las Vegas Operations Manager John Candelaria in a press release. He said Orleans Arena distributed 2,000 tickets to first responders and their families.

Beasley says all donations benefit the Steve Sisolak Las Vegas Victims’ Fund. According to Candelaria, the fund has raised about $11 million thus far.

Beasley’s Las Vegas stations are KKLZ(FM), KDWN(FM/HD), KOAS(FM), KVGS(FM) and KCYE(FM/HD). Candelaria particularly thanked Market Manager Tom Humm, Executive Vice President of Programming Justin Chase, Beasley Country Format Captain Donald Stout, Boyd Gaming and the staff of Orleans Arena. He said the event should be “a wonderful night of healing through music.”
