MEGADETH To Provide Disaster Relief On Oklahoma City Stop Of GigantourTuesday, 25th June 2013
MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine released the following statement today: “Many amazing bands have come forward to aid Oklahomans since the May tornadoes came and tore apart their homes and lives. Now it’s time for heavy metal to give to this community!”
Mustaine’s Gigantour, playing the Oklahoma City Zoo Amphitheatre on July 16 with MEGADETH headlining, is donating MEGADETH’s proceeds from this festival to aid Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
The festival on July 16 will not be the only effort to benefit disaster victims while Mustaine and Gigantour are in town. On Monday, July 15 at ASA Hall of Fame Complex, there will be an all-star softball game with MEGADETH and other bandmembers from the festival tour, plus local celebrities and more to be announced. 100% of the proceeds benefit Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. The ASA Hall of Fame Stadium is located at 2801 NE 50th Street and has generously donated the field for this fun, entertaining event. Softball game patrons are asked to make a minimum $5.00 donation to come see some heavy metal celebrities and local celebs have fun on the softball field Monday night!
Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma has been providing for victims non-stop and will be doing so for months to come by way of a food pantry in Moore serving over 200 families each day, daily food boxes and care packages to disaster agencies and volunteers that continue clean-up and rebuilding efforts, and so much more.
