Big and Rich Headline “Vegas Strong” Concert Benefiting Las Vegas Victims


Big & Rich returned to Las Vegas for “Vegas Strong: A Night of Healing,” a free benefit concert held at the Orleans Arena to honor all victims, survivors and first responders from the tragedy on Oct. 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

The duo were performers at the Harvest festival the night a gunman opened fire on the crowd. Just hours before the tragedy, John and Kenny invited military members on stage to lead the audience in a sing-a-long of “God Bless America.” j

Less than a month after the mass-shooting took place, Big and Rich were invited back to Las Vegas for a performance of their hits and another rendition of “God Bless America” as a tribute to the victims and survivors of that tragic night.

The benefit included performances by Cam. Sierra Black and a surprise performance by Rascal Flatts. Donations were collected during the night and all proceeds will benefit the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund.

A one-hour broadcast, featuring performances by Big & Rich and Rascal Flatts, is scheduled to air Friday, Oct. 20 on the Fox Channel’s “Hannity” at 9/8c.
