In support of the upcoming rally against gun violence, the March For Our Lives, G-Eazy and Fall Out Boy will be headlining a benefit concert in Washington DC on March 23rd, a day before the rally, as reported by Rolling Stone. The show, entitled “Stay Amped,” will take place at the venue The Anthem, with all proceeds going to benefit gun violence groups Giffords and Everytown for Gun Safety. The concert and the demonstrations are in response to the deadly shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, which has created a political firestorm of anti-gun protests in recent weeks.
Fall Out Boy remains one of the most popular rock bands in the world, with the group continuing to write bombastic anthems and have won a whole new slew of fans this decade, proving that they are more than just some flash in the pan emo band.
G-Eazy is no stranger to benefit shows as the rapper performed at the massive Band Together benefit concert last year at AT&T Park with the likes of Metallica and Dead & Co to help benefit the victims of the Sonoma County fires. He has quickly become a must-see live act, as evidenced by an impressive headlining set at The Wiltern in Los Angeles last month.
