On Dec. 1, some of brightest names in Las Vegas came together at the T-Mobile Arena to help raise money for victims of the Las Vegas shooting that killed 58 and injured 546; the largest mass shooting in US history. The Vegas Strong Benefit Concert featured performances from Las Vegas bands The Killers and Imagine Dragons as well as Jay Leno, Boyz II Men and longtime Las Vegas performers Blue Man Group.
Video tributes were also sent by Celine Dion, Elton John, Jason Aldean and George Strait. According to Billboard, The Vegas Strong Benefit Concert raised over $700,000. Check out portions of The Killers and Imagine Dragons sets above.
The Vegas Strong Benefit Concert is the latest in several benefit shows. Shortly after the shooting took place at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on Oct. 1, 2017 during Jason Aldean’s set, country music singers held a benefit at a local Vegas venue. A few weeks later another benefit was held which was attended by survivors of the shooting and featured performances by Big & Rich and more.
