The Freedom To Love Now Concert Is Postponed Due to Hurricane Sandy
Tomorrow’s The “Freedom To Love Now!” concert has been postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. The multi-act bill was slated to take place at New York’s Beacon Theater on October 30. The National, fun., Rufus Wainwright, Beth Orton, They Might Be Giants and Doveman were among the acts slated to perform.
A note from the event’s organizers reads, “Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets to support this concert, Freedom To Marry, and the fight for the equality for all Americans. With all the goodwill, momentum, and awareness this concert has generated, we are rebuilding the show on a future date, likely in the Spring. You may hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled show. We will notify you with updated details of the new show very soon. Alternatively you may request a refund through TicketMaster at this time.”
Their statement goes on to say, “The battle for marriage equality in the US will be far from over even after this election. And, we hope you’ll join us in the future as we continue the fight for social justice with the beauty of music. Our beneficiary organization Freedom to Marry is doing everything possible to support the ballot campaigns in the four states in the last week before the election. You can help by making calls for Mainers United for Marriage and Washington United for Marriage without ever even leaving your couch. Just sign up, and an organizer in Maine or Washington will help get you started.”
