Fresh on the heels of his Winter on the Rocks performance at Red Rocks, Grammy-winning producer and DJ Zedd has announced a benefit show for the American Civil Liberties Union at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on April 3. Presented by Goldenvoice, the aptly named “Welcome!” concert comes after Zedd’s call to action on Twitter in response to the recent immigration ban. The eclectic bill will feature performances by Bebe Rexha, Camila Cabello, Daya, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, Incubus, Machine Gun Kelly, Macklemore, Miguel, Mija, Skrillex, and Tinashe, with more artists to be announced. Zedd had this to say about the event:
"As an immigrant myself I feel the need to stand up against the tyranny that threatens our basic human rights. I'm thrilled to come together with Daya, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, Incubus, Macklemore, Skrillex, Tinashe and many more (to be announced soon) to help raise money for the ACLU, an organization that works daily to defend and preserve the rights guaranteed to us by the constitution."
Zedd also added in a Facebook post that each artist will play 3 songs to 30 minutes and that the event is about "COMING TOGETHER for a good cause - not about ego, billing or set times." Ticket for Welcome! will go on sale via AXS on Thursday, February 9, at 10:00 a.m. for $49.50 to $249.50 each plus service fees. You can check for more info on our Staples Center home page as well as RSVP to the Facebook event page here for further updates. Supporters are also encouraged to get active and join the ACLU, an American institution that has fought for the rights of the people for nearly 100 years. Follow this link for more information.
