Red Hot Chili Peppers to Headline Second Band Together Bay Area Concert to Benefit Fire Victims

A second concert is coming to San Francisco to benefit thousands affected by wildfires that laid waste to large swaths of the North Bay in October.

Buoyed by the outpouring of support at November's star-studded Band Together Bay Area concert, organizers revealed Tuesday that Band Together 2 is coming to the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Thursday. The show's impressive lineup features the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Lukas Nelson and Promise of The Real. 

Tickets, which started at $99.50, are completely sold out, organizers said on the morning of the show.

All proceeds will be donated to Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund, which will help "low-income and vulnerable populations affected by the fires," organizers wrote on their website.

Another Planet Entertainment, Salesforce, Lynne and Marc Benioff, and Twilio have signed on to support the cause. Salesforce and the Benioffs were among a group of benefactors who helped raise over $17 million at the concert at AT&T Park earlier this month.

Fires, fanned by gusty winds on Oct. 8, gutted over 200,000 acres in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and other counties. The blazes killed 43 people, left thousands homeless and caused damage worth billions.

Band Together 2 will benefit the Community Foundation Sonoma County, Napa Valley Community Foundation, Community Foundation of Mendocino County, Catholic Charities of Santa Rosa, North Coast Opportunities, and other groups.
