The Killers have regretfully bowed out of this year’s Bridge School Benefit concert. The band was slotted to perform at Shoreline Amphitheatre on October 26th.
“We are so disappointed we won’t be able to participate in this year’s Bridge School Benefit,” said Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci in a statement released by Live Nation. “The fact of the matter is, without Mark on tour with us right now, we simply aren’t able to prepare an acoustic set for one of the year’s most important music charity events properly. We never want to give less than 100%, and in this particular instance, we simply won’t be able to. We know this is a disappointment for our fans in the Bay Area, for which we’re very sorry, but hopefully we will be able to team up with Bridge School again in the future. It’s an amazing charity, and we encourage our fans to show them a lot of love and support.”
The Bridge School Benefit concerts are on Saturday, October 26th and Sunday, October 27th at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. This year’s line-up includes Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Queens of the Stone Age, My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Diana Krall, Fun., Heart, Jenny Lewis, and special guests.
Tickets for the shows are on sale now at Livenation.com, the Shoreline Amphitheatre box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by calling (800) 745-3000. Tickets are $150 and $75 for reserved seats and $35 for general admission lawn plus applicable charges.
