Dave Matthews will be among the All-Star cast of musicians performing at the Band Together Bay Area concert to benefit victims of the recent fires on November 9th at AT&T Park.

The devastating fires that hit California’s wine country have destroyed close to 8,500 structures and caused at least 42 deaths while displacing thousands of residents from their homes. Damage estimates are said to be approaching $5 billion and the cleanup and recovery efforts will be the largest and costliest in California history.

The show will be underwritten by it’s sponsors with 100% of ticket sales being directed to the Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund. The fund supports community partners working on the front lines to help those hit the hardest along with supporting rebuilding and re-housing efforts.

Tickets for the Band Together Bay Area concert are available at bandtogetherbayarea.org and Ticketmaster.com.
