FINEST CITY BROADCASTING Alternative XTRA-F (91X)/SAN DIEGO has moved their listener Halloween party and concert on OCTOBER 30th with hometown favorite LOUIS XIV from the DEL MAR FAIRGROUNDS to the HOUSE OF BLUES due to the wildfires.
91X also announced that proceeds from the $9.10 tickets will be donated to the SAN DIEGO FOUNDATION FOR FIRE RELIEF EFFORTS. The SAN DIEGO HOUSE OF BLUES stepped in to host the concert in their main music hall, and waived facility fees allowing tickets sales to go to the firefighters.
91X PD PHIL MANNING said, "This past week has been a challenge for everyone in SAN DIEGO, and a rock concert was the last thing on most people’s minds. However, when HOUSE OF BLUES Gave an opportunity to turn it into a fundraiser for the men and women fighting the fires, we couldn’t pass it up."
"I think after all the recent stress we have endured as a city, now the concert might be a great way for people to smile and have fun again. Plus, they will be helping the firefighters which gives it a wonderful feeling."
