Live Nation announces the global relief fund Crew Nation to assist concert crew members around the world. As Covid-19 continues to momentarily “pause” live events, members all around the music industry have become displaced.
Live Nation has committed $10 million to Crew Nation — contributing an initial $5 million to the fund, then matching the next $5 million given by artists, fans and employees dollar for dollar. All proceeds will go to Crew Nation and will go to eligible applicants under the Crew Nation fund.
“Live music inspires millions around the world, but the concerts we all enjoy wouldn’t be possible without the countless crew members working behind the scenes. As COVID-19 puts concerts on pause, we want to extend a helping hand to the touring and venue crews who depend on shows to make a living. Crew Nation was created to do just that.”
