Brad Paisley will host a benefit concert called The 2nd Responders to benefit and honor the first responders at the recent southern California wildfires and mudslides. The event will be held on Saturday, May 12th at the Santa Barbara Bowl, in Santa Barbara, CA. Brad will be joined by some special friends, including Ellen DeGeneres, to celebrate the resurgence of the Montecito and Santa Barbara area. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the community and service workers through local organizations.
Brad said, “(Wife) Kim and I fell in love with Santa Barbara and the Montecito area on our honeymoon. It feels like small town America by the sea. With this concert I hope to raise awareness, spirits and money for the region that’s recovering from the devastating mudslides and fires. I hope people come out and actually make it an experience with us and visit some of the local shops, restaurants, bars and coffee shops.”
A local presale requiring proof of residency will begin on Friday (March 23rd) from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the Santa Barbara Bowl box office and is restricted by billing zip codes in Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties.
