Fall Out Boy to donate Houston concert proceeds to Hurricane Harvey relief
The members of Fall Out Boy are making one of their upcoming Mania tour dates entirely philanthropic.
In response to the devastation in Texas following Hurricane Harvey, the band announced Wednesday that they will donate all proceeds from their Nov. 7 tour date in Houston to storm relief efforts.
Proceeds from the concert will go into the Fall Out Boy Fund, which will make monetary donations to local organizations aiding those in need.
The band members are the latest celebrities to take charitable action in the wake of Harvey’s devastation and flooding. Fellow rockers Coldplay composed a song in tribute to those affected by the storm, promising it would be performed one night only.
Sandra Bullock, Ellen DeGeneres, and the stars of Supernatural are among those who have made sizable financial contributions to relief efforts, and Beyoncé is also working with her charity initiative BeyGood to implement concrete plans to help as many victims in her hometown of Houston as possible.
The Mania tour kicks off Oct. 20 in Cleveland, Ohio.
